Placeholder Image
Just in time for the hot weather and the children's release from school, the Riverbank Community Pool will open for recreational swimming on Monday, June 1 at noon and remain open Mondays through Saturdays from noon until 3:30 p.m.

The cost to swim is $1.75 for under 18 and $2.25 for adults. A swim pass for the season is $60 per individual and $100 for a family pass for up to four people.

Pool users are reminded all swimmers must wear swimsuits. Street clothes, shorts and cutoffs are forbidden.

Swimming lessons in the mornings and evenings also start Monday. Group swim lessons are available for parent/baby, tiny tots, beginners, advanced beginners and intermediate swimmers. The two-week sessions run Monday through Thursdays for 40 minutes per day. The fee is $40 for residents and $45 for non-residents.

The city's swim team called the Barracudas is proving very popular this summer, Parks and Recreation Director Sue Fitzpatrick noted. Numbers on the team have doubled to 60 from last year to put the team at capacity and Riverbank will face three or four competing teams this season. Practice will begin in June and the season runs through Aug. 1.

The Lifeguards in Training Course will run June 15 to June 19. This is a city course taught by the city's water safety instructors and offers initial training to become a lifeguard with a chance to volunteer some hours of assisting at the pool.

Back by popular demand will be the Saturday Night Splash, a night swim from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. starting on June 13.
