Pool, Splash Pad Season Begins on Saturday in Delaware

Summer is calling and the City of Delaware is ready!

The Jack Florance pool at Mingo Park and the splash pad at Veterans Park promise a wet and wild summer. Opening Day is Saturday, May 25. The splash pad opens each day at 10 am and the pool at noon. Both will be open through Labor Day weekend.

The entry fee at the pool, 500 E. Lincoln Avenue, is unchanged from last season: For a City of Delaware resident, age 17 & under, the cost is $8; for a resident age 18 & up, it’s $10. The non-resident (all ages) fee is $10. Season pool passes are available as well at delawareohio.net/parksrecregistration.

There is no cost to use the splash pad, located at 1121 S. Houk Road.

More than 22,000 rounds of golf were played at the Hidden Valley Golf Course in 2023 and just as many are expected this season. The course is owned by the City and operated by the Parks and Recreation Department. It is a 1,647-yard, par 28, 9-hole “executive style” layout that opened in 1968. The City began operating the course in 1975.

It features eight par-3 holes, and one par-4. Hidden Valley is walkable but riding carts are available, too, along with a small driving range and practice putting green. The course is located at 580 W. William Street. Tee times and greens fees can be found at delawareohio.net/golf.

The City of Delaware Parks Recreation Department can be reached at 740-203-1450 or parks@delawareohio.net
