Cool down with one of these local WNY places to have some water fun! This list of pools, beaches, and splash pads has been compiled to help make it easier to find a place to take your family to cool off.

However, keep in mind that you should always check out swimming and other conditions before heading out. Weather, water quality and park conditions often change, which sometimes causes a place to temporarily close. It is also a good idea to call any venue before venturing out to make sure they are open for the day/season.
