Did you know the City of College Station’s aquatic facilities and programs are rated among the best in the entire state of Texas? The Parks and Recreation Department’s Aquatic Division was selected as the Texas Public Pool Council’s Agency of the Year among cities with at least 75,000 people. The TPPC specifically cited College Station’s excellence in implementing fun activities such as theme days, the junior lifeguard program and family swim nights.

The fun-in-the-sun thrills continue at the city’s three outdoor swimming pools. Whether you’re looking for a place to exercise, host a party or just relax in the sun, College Station Aquatics is eager to please.
