It’s summertime here, which means pool days are absolutely necessary in our wonderful city! For us Henderson and Vegas locals though, we are fortunate enough to have access to several Las Vegas pools open to locals that you can access without being a hotel guest.
Take a look at these Henderson and Las Vegas pools we get access to year-round (sans weather)! Some are free and others may have a small admission fee.
*Hours are subject to change, so we recommend verifying hours prior to your visit.
Pool Time Must-Haves
There’s nothing worse than a kid who wants to have fun stuck in a wet diaper and clothes. We’ve all been there, a little unprepared, but ready to take on whatever comes.
Some items you’ll want to have on hand for your pool day fun should include:
Sunscreen (one of our favorites for kids with all clean ingredients)
Full food and beverage menus are available poolside. Reservations not required unless renting a cabana. Must be 21 years of age or older. Usually opens from Tuesday through Sunday once we are in the midst of summer.

Las Vegas Pools Open For Locals In The Past
The pandemic definitely limited the number of pools locals have access to in Henderson and Las Vegas.
Here are some locations that previously offered free pool access to non-guests, however, are now limiting access to hotel guests only.
We will keep an eye on them and update this post as we monitor their policy to see if their offerings change.
Plaza – hotel guests only as of June 2022
Should I Rent a Cabana?
There are pros and cons to renting a cabana. Depending on the location, renting a cabana may allow you to bypass any admission fees. The cabanas are usually nice and cool which is great to stay a bit more out of that hot Vegas sun.
On the other hand, you may be required to spend a food and beverage minimum when renting a cabana. Depending on the number of people in your party and if you are able to hit that minimum is always something to consider.
Don’t forget to call any of the Henderson and Las Vegas pools open for cabana reservations ahead of time to learn about their specific terms.
