Pool and Beer Garden

Kids love to slide and splash at TOSA Pool.

Summer is a splash in Wauwatosa at the TOSA Pool at Hoyt Park. This outdoor community pool is fun for all ages, with zero-depth entry, competitive lap lanes and even a giant slide. Originally opened in 1939, the pool was operated by Milwaukee County for over sixty years until structural issues forced it to close. A group of local volunteers banded together to lease the area from the county and construct a new pool to bring summer fun back to Tosa. The new pool opened to the public in 2011 and has become a center of the community, bringing kids, athletes and families together.

But the fun doesn’t end when the pool closes for the season. Open from May through October, The Landing at Hoyt Park is Wauwatosa’s beer garden. Enjoy an ever-changing menu of local craft and imported beer, open Wednesday through Sunday. Bring your own picnic or purchase classic beer garden snacks like giant pretzels and beer brats. Set against the natural beauty of Hoyt Park, The Landing is a great place to gather when the pool is open as well as later in the year.
