Richardson public pools are a good resource for a mom on a budget. Unlike the pricier Plano pools, Richardson pools are only $2 per person. We tried out the Arapaho Pool and the kids loved it! The large pool had slides and a huge swimming area. There is a separated splash playground for toddlers at the Arapaho Pool and the Glenville Pool. The other three pools have baby pools. The best part is that children under 4 years old get in free! The Arapaho Pool is closed on Wednesdays and the other pools all close once a week on a scheduled weekday. Check the web site to see which pools are open before you go check them out.
