2016 Pool Fees
The daily admission price for the pool is $4.50. Children 3 and under are admitted free. Individuals may also purchase a season pass. Park staff modified the pool fee structure in 2012. In the past, pool patrons could purchase a single pass or a family pass. The new structure is designed to work as a group pass. It does not matter if you are buying a pool pass as a family, a group of kids that live on the same block, or a daycare care group. The only requirement is that you buy all the passes together. Once the passes are purchased, a photo id will be created for each individual. All season pool passes must be purchased at the Parks Office located at 3000 N. 4th Ave E in Newton. Parks office hours are 8:00am-5:00pm.
