Pools and spray parks

Stay cool this summer at our spray parks and recently-renovated pool!

The spray parks are open to the public during the summer months, from June to September. The pool at Lepp Park, renovated in 2023, will open to Somerville residents in late June. We are exploring future options for the former pool site at Walck Park.
