The Best Indoor Water Park in Cincinnati

Even though spring break is only a few weeks away, your family can enjoy lots of swimming now! The Powel Crosley, Jr. YMCA’s indoor pools are filled with lots of family-friendly activity during the cooler months. For the beginner to advanced swimmer, the Y offers many lesson and competitive swim programs for all children and adults with certified instructors in their indoor lap pools. However, if your family is looking for recreational swimming or relaxing by the pool, enjoy the Y’s indoor water park with friendly and certified lifeguards. The Powel Crosley, Jr. YMCA allows your family to splash around throughout the entire year.

Located in Springfield Township, my daughter and her friends visited the Powel Crosley, Jr. YMCA for some swimming fun. It is funny that these girls swim competitively year-round, but enjoy lots of recreational swimming during their downtime.  At the Y, it is always safety first. After we arrived, the girls followed the lifeguard to the outdoor pool with the cold weather bubble for their swim test. This enormous facility includes a 50-meter pool, covered during the winter months, and is used for competitive and lap swim. With flying colors, the girls passed their swim tests by swimming one length of the pool and one minute of treading water. And then it was time for the water park!


The Y’s indoor and spacious water park includes a leisure pool with a water playground, body flume slide, lazy river and lap lanes. As soon as we entered the water park, the girls immediately went to the three-story slide for lots of splash time. After lots of turns down the slide, it was time for a little relaxation in the lazy river. Floating leisurely did not last long, because these girls are full of energy. They began racing and swimming relays in the lap lanes. Needing a break, they refueled on snacks and juice. Then they were back in the pool being dunked by the tall buckets and tons of laughter and happy shrieks screams could be heard.

After hours of fun, it was time to go home. But the girls enjoyed every minute of swimming excitement; and would love to come swim at the Powel Crosley, Jr. YMCA again. Their pools are the perfect place for your family to “just keep swimming” throughout every season. The Powel Crosley, Jr. YMCA is located at 9601 Winton Road, Cincinnati OH 45231; and click here for more information or to join the Y.
