Lap Swim and Water Walking Drop-In for August 1-14
Lap swim is only for swimmers that are a minimum of 12 years in age with the purpose of swimming laps or water walking. You may stay during the entire hours that we are open for lap swim. When lap swim hours end, you will be asked to exit the pool so we can disinfect and prepare for the next user group. The tot pool is not open during lap swim hours.
How to Pay: For drop-in lap swim, swimmers will pay at the pool. Payment can be made by Visa/Mastercard/American Express, cash or check (payable to the City of San Rafael). We are not selling punch cards or season passes for this season.
Lane use: Swimmers are asked to divide a lane once two swimmers are in a lane. If a third swimmer joins the lane, then circle swimming will be required. Swimmers are asked to maintain social distancing with other swimmers as much as possible. Water Walkers can use a lane or the shallow area of the pool as space permits.
