Poolside hangouts in Sarasota County

Take a dip in Sarasota County’s pools and enjoy the nearby surroundings of beaches and parks.

Sarasota County is a popular vacation destination for travelers seeking to layout on a beach. But sometimes, when you want to do some serious swimming, the waves, currents, and saltwater of the gulf provide less than preferable conditions. Consider stopping by Lido Pool or Arlington Park for recreational swimming in Sarasota County.

Lido Pool

Want to hang out at the beach, then dip in the pool? Lido Beach Pool & Pavilion is, as it sounds, located right on Lido Beach. Just $4 for adults, $2 for youth under 12 and seniors over 55, this 25 meter lap pool with up to five lanes for lap swimming, is open throughout the year (with hours adjusting seasonally.)

Arlington Park and Aquatic Center

Unfortunately not located on the beach, Arlington Park and Aquatic Center makes of for it with its wide array of amenities, including a 50-meter lap pool, outdoor basketball courts, a racquetball court, a half mile paved walking trail and more. This pool is located at 2650 Waldemere Street, just south of downtown, and pool fees are $4 for adults, $2 for youth under 12 and seniors over 55.

Sarasota Modern Pool

Sarasota Modern allows guests for a fee to come hangout by the luxurious, mid-century modern style patio and pool. Grab a tropical drink to sit poolside at the outdoor bar or a bite to eat from its restaurant and feel like you're on vacation, without the overnight stay.
