Pools & Splash Pads

Outdoor Pools

Escape the summer heat in Wausau at an outdoor pool. Cool off at one of the three seasonal aquatic centers in the city: Kaiser Pool, Memorial Pool, and Schulenburg Pool. Each offers a refreshing oasis with plenty of space to soak up the sun and make a splash with family and friends.

Splash Pads

But the excitement doesn't stop there! Explore the interactive fountain and splash pads scattered throughout the city for some added relief on those scorching summer days. At Marathon Park, the splash pad welcomes children of all ages, accompanied by adults, for a day of water-filled fun. And in downtown Wausau, the splash pad/fountain on the 400 Block welcomes visitors with its playful streams and refreshing mist.

When the weather outside is less than ideal, Wausau's indoor pools offer the perfect retreat. Head over to the Creske Community Center in Mosinee for a thrilling aquatic adventure complete with slides, diving boards, and a soothing whirlpool. Plus, don't miss the year-round aquatic fun at the Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites in Weston, where a pool and kid's play area await, ideal for parties and gatherings.
