The Ohio State University Recreational Pools

Area: Downtown

The Ohio State University has three pools available for visitors to lap in: the McCorkle Aquatic Pavilion and the Recreation Natatorium. Distances for swimming include a 10-lane 50m, two 6-lane 25-yard pools, and an 8-lane 25-yard pool.

For $10, you can swim in any and all of the Buckeye pools. Even though the university is north of downtown, it's closer to our downtown hotels than our North Columbus-Easton recommendations.

In our detailed description, Pool 1 is the McCorkle Aquatic Pavilion. Pools 2 and 3 are the Recreation Natatorium. Pool 2 is used primarily for lap swimming. Pool 3 is used primarily for instruction, but is sometimes available for lap swimming. All of the pools are in the university's RPAC building.
