90° Pool Days

IU Health When the temperature is forecasted to be 90° or above, Bloomington Parks and Recreation and partner Indiana University Health Bloomington invite the community to swim for half price between 4 and 6 p.m. at the City of Bloomington's two outdoor pools.

On 90° Pool Days, admission to Bryan Park Pool and Mills Pool is $2.50 for adults, and $2 for youth under the age of 17 years. Each morning, Bloomington Parks and Recreation staff will check the weather forecast and, if the temperature (not heat index or dew point) is slated to reach 90° F or above, both Indiana University Health Bloomington Hospital and Bloomington Parks and Recreation will post on Facebook by 1 p.m. that it is a 90° Pool Day. To find out when is the next 90° Pool Day, like Bloomington Parks and Recreation Department, IU Health Bloomington Community Health, and IU Health Bloomington Hospital on Facebook.

Private Swim Lessons

Private or semi-private swim lessons allow the participant to work at a personalized level to achieve swim goals. All our swim instructors are American Red Cross Water Safety Instructor Certified. Private swim lessons are a good way to help swimmers focus on a particular skill, or to help overcome a fear of the water. Contact Aquatics Coordinator Chelsea Price at 812-349-3769 to set up a private or semi-private swim lesson package with one of our outstanding swim instructors.
