Outdoor pools open to the public is a hot topic once summer rolls around. Many do require visitors to be a resident, work in the city which the pool is in, &/or need to be with a resident to use the facilities. This is a lot to comb through so I wanted to put together an easy to reference list of outdoor pools that do not have ANY of these requirements.
To start off, the city of Cleveland has 21 FREE outdoor pools that are open to the public that you can start with. There are no requirements to visit but just be aware of their limited days/hours of operations due to the continued lifeguard shortage. To view locations & more info, visit this page.
I would highly recommend checking ahead of time & calling anywhere you’d like to visit for up to date information to save time/frustration.
Here are other pools outside of the city of Cleveland open to the public (admission fees will apply.) Each location is linked to their website where you can find more details.
