Town Pool/Splash Pad Hours & Rules


The Town of Southington's pool and splash pad facilities are open seasonally to Southington residents only; however, each resident with proper ID may bring one (1) non-resident guest.  Proof of residency must be presented in order to gain entry. There is no fee to use the facilities. Hours are subject to change based on weather conditions or due to pool safety concerns.

Southington resident parents who need a non-resident caregiver to take their children to the pool may obtain a "Non-Resident Caregiver Pool Pass" for the season from the Recreation Department office during regular business hours.  The parent applying for the pass must present proof of residency (a non-expired driver's license or passport is sufficient). There is no fee for the pass. Please call the Recreation office at 860-276-6219 with any questions.
