Placerville Recreation & Parks

May 07, 2013 09:43AM ● By Style

Every year, the City of Placerville’s Recreation and Parks Department transforms young students into tadpoles, ducks, alligators, seals, dolphins, seahorses and sharks. With this cacophony of aquatic life learning to swim, it’s not surprising that Placerville’s summers are fun-filled and sun-soaked.

What better way to start your summer than by signing your little one up for swim lessons? June 1 marks the first day the Placerville Aquatics Center opens; classes fill up fast, so register soon. For those swimmers who enjoy an open pool, public swimming hours are Monday through Friday, 1-4:30 p.m., Saturdays 11 a.m. to 3:15 p.m., and Sundays 1-5:30 p.m. Evening family swims start June 10 and are held every weeknight from 7-9 p.m.

Excited to come to the pool every day? Get a season pass; cost is $55 for children 17 and under, $65 for adults 18-54, and $55 for those 55 and above. Pool party rentals are offered during public swim times and facility rentals during the weekend.

Look in the Summer 2013 Activity Guide for more information on the Placerville Aquatics Center and all of the new summer classes, including Group Guitar for children and adults, Intensive Acting for teens and adults, and several adult art and computer classes.
