Cool Off at Marin Community Pools 2023

Hamilton Community Pool Novato

Looking for a family-friendly pool in Marin to keep cool on a warm spring or summer day? Here's our list of swimming pools throughout Marin County that are open to the public and offer drop-in recreational swim hours for families. In addition to daily drop-in fees, many of these pools offer season passes for families as well. We've also included some of the awesome private swim clubs here, in case you want to purchase a family membership for swimming fun all summer long.

All schedules and drop-in fees are accurate at the time of publishing, but are subject to change and cancellation without notice. It always helps to give them a call to confirm hours and prices before you go. If you know of another local drop-in swim facility that you don't see in our roster here, please let us know and we'll add it to the list.
