Pool & Water Park Hours

Please note that in an effort to communicate more effectively, we will update the pool schedules in Summer bi-weekly. The schedule is subject to change without notice. For weather-related changes, join our Eskenazi Water Park group on Facebook to see up-to-date weather alerts
Posted July 5 at 10:30 am: The Zero Depth pool is open.

  Indoor Pools Schedule through July 23

  OUTDOOR Pools Schedule through July 23

Reservations are NOT needed for members to access open swim, water fitness classes or lap swim.

Water fitness equipment is available. Swimmers do not need to disinfect equipment used for lap swim or water fitness classes, as the CDC has found that the chlorine in the pool does a good job of this on its own.

Eskenazi Water Park

The Eskenazi Water Park opens for the season on Saturday, May 28, 2022.

Boasting 389,000 gallons of water and over 71,000 square feet of play area, this complex has an attraction to keep every family member happy.

  • Mordoh Zero-Depth Pool – Perfect for infants and toddlers, this pool is great for splashing.
    • The 6-inch deep Mordoh Infant Rainbow Pool is only for those under 2 years of age. The Zero-Depth Pool and Star of David Splash Pad are for children age 6 and under.
  • Adolph Biccard Lazy River – A 300 ft long lazy river makes the perfect leisurely ride around the water park.
  • Two Water Slides – Enjoy either our 150 ft flume or 125 ft tube slide, a great attraction for kids (48″ or taller) and adults.
  • Dan & Katy Cantor River Island – Stay cool under our umbrellas and relax on comfortable furniture next to the pool fun.
  • Alan & Linda Cohen Outdoor Competition Pool – Whether you’re swimming competitively, just learning or looking to swim laps, this pool is open to all.

Please Note: The Eskenazi Water Park closes 15-30 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. During the season, the Eskenazi Water Park Facebook Group will be updated with alerts.

Eskenazi Water Park Hours

During the season: Lap Swim and Water Fitness only until 11 am. Open swim begins at 11 am.
