Aquatics Guide
                    Aquatics in the All-Heart City

Since 1996 the Dennis Malone Aquatic Center has been the city’s premier indoor aquatic center. Featuring six-lanes of open  swimming space, a one-meter diving board, and year-round programming. The city of Bristol is home to one indoor pool and two outdoor pools. New for 2021 will be Page Pool re-designed!

The Dennis Malone Aquatics Center is a competitive swimming facility that is proudly called their “home pool” by five community swim teams. Additionally, the pool is used for Red Cross learn to swim programs, our own recreational swim team, community lifeguard training courses, water exercise classes,  and members of the community for daily swimming.

The city of Bristol operates two public municipal pools in both Page Park and Rockwell Park. The pools are open seasonally for an 8-week period, daily from 1pm-7pm.  Page pool features a large swimming area for families. Rockwell offers a smaller, shallow-water swimming experience. Page Park Pool has been completely renovated and will open Summer 2021. 
 
Splash pads can be found all throughout the all-heart city. Located at Stocks Playground, Page Park, and Rockwell Park. The splash pads are a great place to cool off during the summer! New Splash park elements will be available at Page Park Pool for Summer 2021!
