The 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.
The complex is open from late May through Labor Day. The facility is available for University Park residents and those who reside in the Highland Park Independent School District only. Jump into summer with our Aquatic Programs! We offer swim lessons for children ages 3 and older. We also have a swim team for swimmers ages 5 to 17.
Pool passes can be purchased in person at the Holmes Aquatic Center or online using an existing RecTrac account.
Adjacent to the existing children's pool and approximately 1,500 square feet in size, a zero-depth playground automatically distributes water to more than 25 spray and water features so that younger children can safely spray, splash and slosh the day away.
