City Pools and Spray Parks

The four public swimming pools operated by the City of Wilmington’s Parks and Recreation Department are open for the season.

Foster Brown Pool, Prices Run Pool, the William “Hicks” Anderson Community Center Pool, and Eden Park Pool will operate through August 13 from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. (public swim hours). Refer to the schedule below for locations and days the pools are open and closed; please note that of the four pools, only the Prices Run Pool in Brown, Burton, Winchester Park at 26th Street and Speakman Place will be open on the July 4th holiday from 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.

The pools are staffed by Red Cross-certified lifeguards, and feature changing facilities and showers. There is no cost to use the pools during public swim hours. While the pools are open to everyone, patrons under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
