Summer is the best time for swimming in Milwaukee—it’s hot outside and fun to splash around with friends in cool water. Do you know the public swimming pool closest to you? Is your family aware of the many splash pads and wading pools across Milwaukee County? Have you been to one of own water parks at the Lincoln Park, Hoyt Park, Greenfield Park, or Kozy?
Check out the pools and pads in your neighborhood by accessing the Milwaukee Community Map. Open the map in Google Earth Pro on Desktop, then fill in the circle by “UW Sea Grant — Exploring Swimming Access” under the Our Water Stories section. Click on each icon for more details about indoor and outdoor pools, splash pads and wading pools, and water parks.
