Fishtown Recreation Center | 1235 E Palmer St, Philadelphia, PA 19125

Each year, Philadelphia Parks & Recreation joins residents and city leaders to celebrate the opening of the City’s dozens of public swimming pools. This year, we are celebrating the ribbon cutting of the brand-new Francis Lederer Pool at Fishtown Rec (lovingly known as “The Swimmo” to locals), which is opening for the first time in 6 years!

The Swimmo closed since 2016 due to major mechanical issues. Thanks to a $4 million investment from the Kenney Administration’s Rebuild program, the City’s historic investment in public spaces, the pool has been completely modernized and redesigned. The new Swimmo features a raised pool deck, brand new spraygound on site, modern lighting, public art, and changing facilities for pool guests.

On June 21, residents will be able to take an inaugural jump into the brand new Fishtown pool! Neighbors near and far are invited to join in the celebration and enjoy live entertainment, games, food trucks, giveaways, and more!
