Cool off at the Pool Lake Country Family Fun

Cool Off at the Pool!

This is a compilation of some of the public pools in the Waukesha County area, including Milwaukee County, Washington County, and Jefferson County.  Which pool is your family’s favorite? My family loves the Watertown Aquatic Center, but the Wiberg Aquatic Center is super fun, too!

We hope you have fun and cool off in these water attractions this summer!
