The Noah’s Ark Pool, part of First United Methodist Church’s Quillian Center in West Houston (Westchase), is geared to toddlers, pre-K, and early elementary-aged kids. Hence the name, an ark structure with animals is centered in the shallow pool with three slides, a mushroom water drop, and spraying from the animals.
The area also includes a large swimming pool, outdoor basketball pavilion, indoor climbing wall, and gymnasium. Pack a picnic lunch and eat outside the gates at picnic tables to save some money! Or cheap concessions are available including $2 pizza and $1.50 hot dogs. Pool hours are 10 am – 4 pm, Monday through Saturday, till August 24 (with Noah’s Ark pool hours 10 am – 2 pm August 27 – August 31). Sundays are closed for private parties.
Admission: $6.50 each with kids under 1 free. Purchase a “20-Swim Pass”, which provides 20 daily admissions for $100 ($5 each).
