Best Places To Take A Swim in Kansas City–Local Tourist Link Up

Each month I feature some of our local adventures as well as others we would like to check out soon. This month, the main thing we did was go swimming! Even on a cloudy day, we still went swimming inside! Here are some of the best local places to swim.

Lenexa Rec Center

While in the past we have visited the closer to us (and less expensive) Matt Ross Community Center, a new favorite is the brand new Lenexa Rec Center. The pool has water features, slides, lap lanes, and a deep water well with a climbing wall and diving platform.

Olathe Community Center

Our second choice for indoor pools is the Olathe Community Center. Their pool has slides, a lazy river, rick climbing walls, and diving platforms.

Black Bob Bay

Our favorite outdoor water center is Black Bob Bay (or as we call it Black Blob Blay after I accidentally said it that way) in Olathe. It has water slides with rafts, a lazy river with tubes, shallow play areas, and regular pools. We usually go there at least once a summer.

Private Pools

We belong to a country club as gym and swim members and that’s where we swim as well as where Zachary is on the swim team. There are many other country club pools as well as private neighborhood pools in some neighborhoods that are worth looking into if you live here.

Town Pools

Each of the towns in the area has pools which are available with daily rates or annual memberships.

Shawnee Mission Park Beach

We have a beach in Kansas! It’s a lake, but it’s pretty nice!
