Ben Franklin Pool

Tucked away, just north of the Streets of SouthGlenn is this neighborhood pool with something for everyone. Ride the 20 ft. slide, perfect your flip off the diving board, or just enjoy a refreshing swim. For the little ones there’s the whimsical-themed sprayground and toddler pool with a hippo slide. A great place to learn how to swim, Franklin Pool is also home to the competitive Franklin Swim Team.
