Lasker Park Community Pool

Galveston, TX



In August 2017, the City of Galveston celebrated the grand opening of Galveston’s first community swimming pool. A historic moment for the city, the $4.1 million project provides its residents with a state-of-the-art facility, which includes a recreational pool with a kid-friendly play structure and a body slide, as well as an eight-lane short course pool for fitness, wellness, and competition swimming.

This new addition to the Galveston Parks System will give the city the ability to offer aquatic fitness classes and swimming lessons and will also provide the opportunity to offer safety courses, such as first aid, CPR, and lifeguard training.

Aquatic amenities include:

  • Water volleyball
  • Water basketball

4,500 sq. ft. Leisure Pool
