Best Public Pool Houston 2007 - Emancipation Swimming Pool

Readers' Choice: Memorial Park Pool

The city's best and perhaps most-used public pool can be found in Emancipation Park, set in the Third Ward just east of downtown. During the segregation era, Emancipation was Houston's lone municipal park for African-Americans. Today it's a hub for athletics and all kinds of fun and friendly neighborhood activities. The popular pool and water slide attract thousands throughout the ­summer.
