Roundup: Boston’s Swankiest Public Pools
There’s nothing better than a nice cool pool on a hot day. And if cabana rentals, spa services, and panoramic views of the city are more your style than our roundup of public pools, we’ve got you covered. Here, Boston’s best luxury pools that are open to the public—for a fee.
Colonnade Hotel Roof Top Pool
Dine al fresco, order cocktails, and lounge around on the deck, all while enjoying an amazing view of Boston’s Back Bay. Though entrance to the pool is free for Colonnade guests, it’s a splurge for the public at $45 for a full day. Unfortunately, it’s closed to the public on weekends.

The Clubs at Charles River Park
Run by Massachusetts General Hospital, this complex boasts Boston’s largest outdoor pool as well as an indoor pool, Jacuzzi, wading pool, and Jugos pop-up. It also offers swimming lessons and aquatics fitness classes, in addition to traditional group exercise. Buy a season-long membership, or a day pass for $40.
