Sonoma County Guide to Pools, Rivers, Lakes and Boat Rentals
FOR COVID UPDATES, please CALL before going to get the most up-to-date rules, hours, days of operation, etc.
Summer is all about playing in the water... in our rivers, lakes and swimming pools. The MOST IMPORTANT thing to know is how to SWIM...so if you don’t know yet - take lessons or use a life vest for safety. Many public pools offer SWIM LESSONS
Sonoma County Regional Parks partners with city recreation departments to offer the “Vamos a Nadar/Let’s Go Swimming” program (Due to the Covid-19 health emergency, the Vamos a Nadar program is on hold). The program offers low-cost bilingual swim lessons to children and water-safety training to parents. For more information and to register, call 707-565-8034.
