More cool summer fun

Here’s more aquatic-related information you need to know:

Proceeds help support the North Texas music scene at historic Forest Park Pool in a unique family setting. Cost is $8 pre-pay or $10 day-of admission. Family and group discounts are available.

  • Pool rentals. Need a venue for a summer birthday, graduation party or family get-together? Whatever the occasion, Fort Worth’s Forest Park Pool and Marine Park Aquatic Center can serve your need. Priced affordably, these facilities can make for a fun and memorable summer evening. Check available dates, as reservations go quickly. Cost is $400 for two hours (7-9 p.m.) on Fridays, Saturdays or Sundays. The price includes staff costs.

  • Pavilion rentals. Whether you need a place to gather that’s fun for the entire group, or you want to make sure your pool party has a table, consider renting a large pavilion at Marine Park Aquatic Center or Forest Park Pool during normal operating hours to guarantee that your group has a spot. Check the website for available dates. Cost is $75 during general operating hours (1-5 p.m.).
