Only children presenting valid Recreation Center membership cards will receive free entry to the Citiparks pools; all others will need to pay daily admission or purchase a yearly pool tag. To receive the free admission, a parent must register each child – who must be 15 years or younger and a resident of the City of Pittsburgh – at any of the Citiparks’ 10 Recreation Centers and then bring the membership card to the pool each day for entry. PLEASE NOTE: Proof of residency records include a valid driver’s license, utility bill, lease agreement or other official document showing a City of Pittsburgh address.
Individuals can purchase pool tags for year-round admission to Citiparks outdoor pools, which operate throughout the summer, and the Oliver Bath House, which operates during the off-season. For information on purchasing a tag at a pool location, call (412) 323-7928.
