There is something for everyone to enjoy at Fuller Park Pool including a waterslide; seven-lane, 50-meter lap pool; shallow area with ramp access; 12-foot-deep diving well; and plenty of open space and lounge chairs to relax, grills for events or just dinner and space that can accommodate almost any group. Located just minutes from downtown Ann Arbor and North Campus, Fuller Pool is directly across the street from the university hospitals and is open daily May 27 through Labor Day.​

We are excited to announce that the City of Ann Arbor Parks and Recreation has recently joined USA Swimming Foundation’s water safety initiative, Make a Splash. The USA Swimming Foundation launched Make a Splash in 2007 with the goal to teach every child to learn to swim. We aim to spread awareness of the importance to learn to swim and be safe around water. As a Make a Splash local partner, we are dedicated to providing quality swim instruction and the common goal of saving lives and getting children in better shape.
