Maybe you’ve noticed: It’s hot outside.

That’s not likely to change anytime soon, and sitting in a kiddie pool (even one full of margarita) just won’t cut it — not even for the kids. You need a public pool. So, we put them on map for you.

Some notes for the 2017 season:

Outdoor pools in Denver open June 5 and close Aug 13.

Six pools have an extended season and will stay open until Labor Day, Sept. 5:

  • Barnum
  • Berkeley
  • Congress
  • Eisenhower
  • Green Valley Ranch
  • Mestizo-Curtis

Berkeley Outdoor Pool opens June 10 due to maintenance delays.

The lap pool at La Alma opens June 5, but the recreation pool doesn’t open until June 10 while it undergoes repairs.

Happy splashing.
