Greeley’s largest outdoor pool, Centennial Pool, 2315 Reservoir Rd., includes a splash pad with spray features, a diving board, 12-foot drop slide into a diving well, and a water slide. The pool opens every day in the summer, noon to 5 p.m. Lap swimming for ages 14 and older is available from 10 a.m. until noon. Officials highly encourage reservations for lap swim due to limited capacity.
