The City Council voted to permanently close the Urbandale Indoor Pool at its meeting on March 9, 2021, and the pool was demolished. The City issued refunds for all outstanding credits associated with the facility and its programs. Read a letter to the community here.
The wading pool in Lions Park is also permanently closed.
In a continued effort to provide additional alternative aquatic program options the City of Urbandale has partnered with the City of Clive, Goldfish Swim School, and YMCA of Greater Des Moines to provide aquatics opportunities at a subsidized rate for Urbandale residents.
