#32 Cool Off with a Swim

When the valley heat becomes too much to bear, lots of folks like to dive into the water to cool off. Four area facilities offer that opportunity.

Bedrock Park, a 3.75-acre area along the Feather River, offers swimming in the river as well as river views. Nelson Pool is open to the public from June to September and offers recreational swim time daily from 1-4 p.m. with evening hours on Tuesday and Thursday from 6:30-8:30 p.m.

Serious lap swimmers’ hours at the pool are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 4-6 p.m.

Palermo Pool is also open from June to September with recreational swimming hours on Monday through Saturday from 1-4 p.m., and evening hours from 6:30-8:30.

The heated Y.M.C.A. Pool has both classes and open swims. The pool serves a number of populations, from infants through therapy groups.
