Pool & Water Park Hours

(Updated Fri, Aug 16 at 2 pm) The Regenstrief INDOOR lap pool is closed to complete work that was started earlier this year. Painting was completed Aug 9 and work to replace the pool deck began the next week and is expected to be complete in the next two weeks. Pending any unforeseen circumstances, we anticipate an open date of Thu, Aug 29 in time for 5:30 am lap swimmers. Please note that since we are trying to open as soon as possible, the water may still be warming up and at first be a little cooler than we typically keep it.

As you may remember, the indoor pool was closed this past winter to replace the custom air-handling system and then to install a venting system. We chose at that time to re-open the pool before painting and replacing the pool deck was complete. Now that the outdoor lap pool is available, we are ready to begin to complete this work.

The Cohen outdoor lap pool in Eskenazi Water Park will be open past Labor Day. The exact date will be set once we know the final status of the indoor Regenstrief Pool. 

We appreciate members’ patience and understanding as we work to ensure the least amount of disruption and for these final repairs to be completed as quickly as possible. Please check this webpage for updates.

We want to thank United Way of Central Indiana for covering the cost of these repairs and for allowing us to delay them to this summer and then again until our outdoor lap pool was available.

Eskenazi Water Park Hours

Please Note: The Eskenazi Water Park closes 30 minutes prior to the building closing to allow time for showering and changing. We close the water park whenever we hear thunder or see lightning and keep the park closed for 30 minutes after the last thunder was heard or lightning seen. Based on the time of day and radar, we make a determination whether a full closure is necessary. Please check this webpage for any closings.
