It’s pool time in North Texas, and if you don’t have access to one, you’ve probably already been searching for a place to beat the 100-degree heat that is surely waiting for us. Resort Pass offers day passes to some of the nicest hotel pools in the metroplex, but if you’re interested in season passes, lower daily prices, and more kid-friendly options, we’ve got you. Here are some area pools where you and your family can get an all-access membership or drop in for the day. 

Lee Harvey’s Dive-In

In the Dallas neighborhood known as The Cedars, a private social swim club awaits you. With a full bar and food menu, you can order from Lee Harvey’s 60 x 30-foot pool — the size of a small home — or from the available cabanas and tables. You can get an adult day pass for $20, and for $5 a child can swim till 5 p.m. You can also get a season membership that will cost a single adult $350 and includes several perks, like priority access in reserving cabanas and loungers and free yoga classes twice a week. 

Forest Park Pool

The City of Fort Worth has a few different public pools for residents (and non-residents) to choose from, but its oldest pool, Forest Park Pool, is back after a renovation that took more than a year. The 102-year old pool got a $15 million facelift and now includes a kiddie pool, 50 meter lap pool for adults, and waterslide. Day passes here cost $5 for children and $6 for adults. 

Rosemeade Rainforest Aquatic Complex

With multiple pools, two 22-foot water slides, and a 600 gallon dump bucket for $10 or less a day, Carrollton’s aquatic complex is a steal! Carrollton residents will pay $5 for a weekday swim and $6 on weekends, while non-residents are charged $10 an individual for a weekend swim. Family season passes range from $120-$150 and include a key fob for convenient entry. Guests also have access to concession stands, picnic tables, and the newly renovated bathhouse.

Howard Moore Play Pool

The City of Arlington offers seven different indoor and outdoor public pools with low-cost entry fees. The Howard Moore pool is great for younger kids, and is open until 5 p.m. six days a week while school is out. For $3-$4 a visit, kids get an interactive pool experience with access to family changing rooms and snack concessions, but you can also bring your own snacks if you’d like. 

The Village Beach Club

It’s less about swimming and more about partying at this spot! The Village brings that Las Vegas day club experience to North Dallas with guest DJs, drinks, and day passes ranging from $15-$40. At this newly renovated spot, you’ll find 17 private VIP cabanas, three bars, daybeds you can reserve, and a 34,000-square-foot pool. Vanderpump Rules’ James Kennedy will be DJing in June! It goes without saying that the venue is only for people 21 and up.

The Texas Pool

The legendary Texas Pool is open for its 63rd summer. The saltwater pool, shaped like the state of Texas, has a diving board and two water slides, and a shallow part for small children and families. This Plano historic landmark offers individual memberships for $160 a season and family memberships for $295. You might even encounter mermaid meetup groups during your visit. Fingers crossed.

Glen Cove Swim Club

The Glen Cove Swim Club has operated in North Dallas since the 1960’s. Membership allows usage of the gas grills, wifi, and ping pong tables, and lifeguards are on duty all summer long. The Club also offers swim classes for an extra fee and even has a swim team that competes weekly. A family membership for Glen Cove is $520.
