City Pools



Keep cool this summer at any of our city pools located at 36th Street in South Wheeling; Garden Park in Warwood; Bridge Park on Wheeling Island; and Grandview Pool in Wheeling Heights.

They are a great place to be in the sun, catch a tan, and best of all is the price! $1 for adults, $0.50 for children (5-12), and kids under 5 get in free!

Opening day is Saturday, June 6th with daily hours of Noon - 6 P.M. The city will operate the concession stands and certified lifeguards are always on duty.

Learn To Swim
The City of Wheeling offers one of the best Learn-To-Swim programs in the Tri-State area.  The cost is a nominal $5 - now that’s a bargain you can’t pass up! Sessions are open to children ages 3 and up. Each session is scheduled to last for two weeks and run Monday - Friday.

We offer classes from beginners to advanced swimming levels. There will also be pre-school classes for children 3 - 5 years old (a parent must accompany child into the water). The classses are taught by qualified Red Cross Water Safety Instructors and lifeguards.

Registration is on the first day of each session anytime between 9:00 A.M. - 11:30 A.M. and a certificate will be given at the completion of the classes.
