Aquatics Programs Available during the Fall Season
While summer programs have ended, there are still a few remaining aquatics programs continuing through mid-November.
Saturday swim lessons are offered from 9 a.m. through 11 a.m., June 6 through September 26.
. . Wet Play is a sparsely decorated space, adjacent to the Alhambra Park Pool, where revelers are sprinkled with cool water. The water comes from a underground pool, booster pumps shooting the water from the fixtures and a drain recirculating the water into the underground pool where it is filtered and treated with chemicals, making the water safe and sanitary. And the recycling makes sure that no water is wasted, especially during these drought-stricken times.
Wet Play runs through Saturday, September 26, daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
