With the sweltering triple digits already in progress and summer just beginning, the Riverbank Community Pool may be just what is needed to keep cool. The City of Riverbank’s Parks and Recreation Department offers a variety of aquatics activities including swim lessons, a swim team, and recreational swim which opened on Monday of last week. The hours are Monday through Thursday from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. and Saturdays from noon to 4 p.m. for the recreational swimming.
The first session of swim lessons began on June 3 and will continue through June 13. Session 2 will begin on June 17 and go through June 27 for tiny tots, beginners, and intermediate participants. Sessions will continue through August. Private swim lessons are also available.
The pool is located at the corner of Seventh Street and Stanislaus Street. The entrance fee is $2, an individual swim pass for the season is $80, and for a family of four, the season pass costs $150. People of all ages are welcome to take a dip as long as the pool has not met its full capacity which is dependent on the lifeguard to guest ratio. Officials also recommend that minors visiting the pool be accompanied by an adult.
In August there will be a Log Rolling activity in the pool during the evenings Monday through Wednesday and free family night on Fridays.
