Kids don’t need to be future Olympians to take up swimming. With two outdoor pools open during the summer months and Choice Health & Fitness’ pool open year round, kids have many opportunities to get fit while having fun.

Outdoor Pools

The Grand Forks Park District has two great outdoor pools that offer fun for kids of every age. Elks Pool and Riverside Pool are open from early June to mid-August of each year for open swimming and lessons. Riverside pool offers a diving board, a fun water slide and toddler pool while Elks Pool has two great water slides and a spray park. Both facilities have concessions, picnic & playground areas.
