H2O Pool and Bar at Golden Nugget 

Lake Charles has an exciting Las Vegas vibe, with upbeat music, contemporary seating, fire-pits, 34 poolside cabanas, and lively libations. The extra-large pool features adult only and family sections, tanning ledges with in-water loungers, swim up daybeds and a swim up bar. There are five hot tubs and a Lazy River with two slides.

L’Auberge Casino Resort 

entices guests outdoors with their tropical garden pool complex. Just a hint of imagination will transport you to the relaxing Caribbean. There’s a family pool you can enjoy with your children or a quieter adult pool area with its own bar -- your choice. Grab a floatie and gently meander down the Lazy River along lush green vegetation, beneath jungle island bridges, and around the island. Hop into one of two Jacuzzis, backstroke to the swim-up bar. The pool complex is open to L’Auberge guests only, but beach access is free and open to the public.

West Park Swimming Pool

Laps in the 25-meter pool, little kid, middle kid, and big kid slides, a wading pool/splash pad combo, and even a supply life jackets for those who need them. Concessions available. Don’t bring floaties; only coast guard approved floatations are allowed. Look for half price sessions in the evenings and military discounts on Sunday’s.

Numerous public pools are located throughout Lake Charles and operated by Ward 3.
