Hot summer days call for cool pools. Outside of Metro Parks’ public pools, it can be hard to find a publicly accessible pool (especially with cocktails). Look no further. Here are the top pools you can enjoy this summer in Nashville. Whether it’s a single-day pool party or an overnight staycation, consider these spots for your next water day in Music City.
Pools You Can Enjoy This Summer in Nashville
SoundWaves at Gaylord Opryland
While the upscale resort water attraction at Gaylord Opryland is primarily restricted to hotel guests, there is one other way to get access to SoundWaves: party rooms. If you book a private party room for eight or more guests, you can receive a SoundWaves day pass for each guest. Rental rates are $45+ per person and also include pizzas, non-alcoholic beverages, and more. Locals get discounts on overnight stays if you want to make a staycation out of it. SoundWaves is an indoor-outdoor experience, so it’s open year-round (but only open outdoors during the warmer months)! See the calendar for indoor/outdoor hours.
Relax poolside at Pinewood Social, one of Nashville’s most popular food and drink destinations. Their outdoor dipping pools and poolside service can be enjoyed Friday through Sunday from 10:00am to 7:00pm (weather permitting). The pools are first-come, first-served, so get there early to secure your spot. Towels are available for rent and sunscreen is available for purchase. The pool area is restricted to guests 21 or over.
