Our system is experiencing glitches due to a large amount of traffic. The site is telling customers that a spot is available when it is not, sending incorrect registration confirmations, and is having trouble allowing refunds. Our software management company is aware of these issues and working on the system.
If you receive the following message it is because another patron has booked the spot while you were checking out.

Hamilton Community Pool

203 El Bonito Dr,  Novato
(415) 883-7126

The cities of San Rafael and Novato, who maintain and operate Novato’s Hamilton Pool through a Mutual Services Agreement, have made the difficult decision to keep the Hamilton pool closed for the Summer 2020 season. Due to limited staffing and budget constraints as a result of COVID-19, the cities of Novato and San Rafael are unable to operate both pools at this time in a manner that adheres to the County’s guidelines. We hope to welcome you back to the Hamilton Pool in 2021!
