The City’s Department of Youth, Parks, & Community Enrichment (YPCE) has officially kicked off summer at Sacramento public pools, with 14 facilities open now through mid-August.
“Last year, due to the pandemic, we were only able to open a few pools to limited in-person programs,” said Mario Lara, Director of Youth, Parks, & Community Enrichment. “This summer, we are excited to offer a safe place for residents to swim at 14 locations.”
The Aquatics Division this year will offer swim lessons, swim team, water aerobics, recreation swimming and lap swimming at 10 lifeguarded pools. Four free lifeguarded play/wading pools are also open for children under 7.
The pools that are now open include:
- Cabrillo Pool (1648 65th Avenue)
- Clunie Pool (601 Alhambra Boulevard)
- Doyle Pool (2827 Mendel Way)
- Hall Pool (5201 Carlson Drive)

The City hosted a “Summer Kickoff Weekend” June 18-20 with $1 admission at community pools. In addition to the discounted rates at all citywide pools, Councilmember Mai Vang covered the admission cost during Kickoff Weekend for those who visited the pools in District 8 (Pannell Meadowview Pool and Cabrillo Pool).
For the remainder of the summer, community pools will cost $2 per child and $4 per adult and will be open with varying hours and days through mid-August. “Swim Safe Sacramento” scholarships are available to provide free aquatics programs to people demonstrating financial need.
Also, the City and Sacramento Public Library are offering a Summer Reading program, where youth can receive free swim passes by reading books through their local library.
Following current state Covid-19 guidelines, unvaccinated individuals are asked to wear masks at City pools when not in the water.
