The Best Swimming Pools and Splash Pads in St. Louis


When the weather gets too dang hot, there is only one thing to do: get wet. Hiding out indoors or trying to stay in the shade is for amateurs. Real St. Louisans know that beating the heat involves more than just avoiding yard work and chugging a few Busch beers. You have to find a place to soak yourself. Pools or splash pads. It's the only way.

But whether you're new to the city or just distraught about the closing of the magnificent Koch Park pool, we have some options for you. Pick one of these and pack up your beach towels, because it's just too steamy to do anything but get your float on. Don't forget the sunblock!
