Public swimming pools in Reno and Sparks become popular places when summer weather heats things up across the Truckee Meadows. We have a nice selection of places to cool off, play in the water, and even learn how to swim.

Washoe County is also in the game with the naturally heated pool at Bowers Mansion Regional Park in Washoe Valley and water play splash parks at Lazy 5 Regional Park and North Valleys Regional Park.

For free water play, try the Truckee River at Wingfield Park in Reno and Rock Park in Sparks. Both parks have whitewater features for kids and families to enjoy during visits to these parks. Get more information from “Public Swimming Pools and Water Play Places in Reno and Sparks.”
