City Budget Impacts Summer Swimming

Public Swimming PoolI have some fond memories of going to a public pool while staying with family a few weeks during the Summer… My parents probably liked the fact that I wasn’t out riding my bike on busy streets or getting into trouble. In the Sacramento area, public pools also provide an alternative to the dangers of swimming in local rivers. Unfortunately, the number of pools open to the public is much lower this Summer.

The City of Sacramento recently announced which of the public pool will be open, or closed, due to budget reductions. Because funding to maintain the city’s swimming pools has been reduced from $3.5 million to under $1 million, several Sacramento area pools will be closed. Others will have reduced hours and/or services.

Pool hours, dates & programming may be affected due to potential budget reductions beginning July 1, 2011. Recreational swim hours, fees, and dates may be subject to change. We regretfully cannot take any program registration payments at City pool facilities.
