A day pass is under $5 for adults and there is a free guarded storage area. This pool also has neat history behind it. The site was once the Fargo Sports Arena used for indoor winter sport events in the 30s and 40s. The old pool was a few yards south where a tennis court is with stadium seating. It's... More

it was awesome to have a walk that was like a nature trail. i enjoyed the length of it. It had benches that were spread along the way in case a person gets tired. It was fall time when I went and the leaves were not covering the sidewalk which made it very accessible.

I've never had a problem at this pool. Somewhat overcrowded during peak summer but, hey, we live 50 miles from the nearest body of water. The pool pass is a bit spendy but if you're going to go frequently, there are many worse ways to spend your money. Concessions are available and downtown is just across the street. Located adjacent... More

Kids and me liked it very much specially when they open the deep one for diving, best ever when visit with friends. But changing rooms need some more privacy. It has only 2 pathrooms in men space. Also, needs regular cleaning the water from tree leaves fallen into pool. I like swimming in Summer.

This pool is often packed in the summer, but there still seems to be room for kids to play. My son loves the diving boards and this pool has the best ones in town. There is not a slide or other activities that you have to pay more to do. That is a nice feature! We like going to the... More

For the older kid- ages 9-15- this is a great pool. My son loves to dive so he prefers this pool over others. There are pools in town with "attractions" like slides etc. but no diving boards. There is a basic swim pool and then a deeper pool for diving. the pool is busy but not crowded most days in... More

This pool sits on the south edge of the downtown business district and just west of the Red River. The front of the pool incorporates the art deco facade of the former Fargo arena which opens to balconies that overlook this outdoor Olympic-sized pool. There are many lanes to cater to lap swimmers as well as a separate diving pool... More

If it's summer and the pool is open, this is a pretty good facility to entertain yourselves. There's a very large pool deck and the changing facilities are clean with ample storage. There is a kiddie pool included, which has lifeguards. There is also a diving pool where you can high-and-low dive, so quite a bit of entertainment for the... More
