The Pool is Open

Dear Patrons, 

We are pleased to announce the following updates to the Recreation and Swim Complex beginning Monday, June 21, 2021. The pool will be open for lap swim and water exercise classes with no reservation requirements. Pool hours are Monday-Friday from 7:30 am – 4:30 pm with water exercise class from 9:00 am – 10:00 am. Lap lane capacity will not be limited so be prepared to share lane space with others. The Recreation Complex including the gymnasium and weight room will be open to the public with no reservation requirements. Contract classes such as Jazzercise and Zumba will also be returning with schedules to be announced at a later date. Following updates to the California Department of Public Health that take effect June 15, 2021, we are excited to be able to expand our services and welcome the community back to the facility.
