Holmes Aquatic Center

University Parks PoolThe Holmes Aquatic Center is located at 3501 Lovers Lane within Curtis Park. The complex offers a 50-meter pool, a giant water slide, 3-and 1-meter diving boards and a walk-in ramp to aid handicapped accessibility. A separate pool, with an aerated fountain and shaded area is available for younger children.

Adjacent to the existing children's pool and approximately 1,500 square feet in size, a zero-depth sprayground automatically distributes water to more than 25 spray and water features so that younger children can safely spray, splash and slosh the day away.

The complex is open from Memorial Day through Labor Day. The facility is available for University Park residents and those who reside in the Highland Park Independent School District only.

For questions regarding the city's aquatic facility, please contact the Parks and Recreation Department office at 214-987-5488.
