At the Y we provide a safe, nurturing, and fun environment to engage the interests of all kids. Our adventures are non-stop and our activities reinforce the values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. 

The Gold Country YMCA provides a safe environment for kids (and adults!) to have a unforgettable time in the water. Our public pool offers year-round fun including lap swim, water safety and swim lessons, open swim, parties and more!

What is "Penguin Swim"?

The Penguins are a master swim team that rents the pool for their team. If you are interested in swimming with the Penguins please email: for more information 

Lap swim info

Lap swim is available for adults and teens (over the age of 13) to swim laps in the pool. Lap lanes are marked with speed signs. Find a lane that fits your speed. When sharing lanes, 2 people will split the lanes. When 3 or more people are in a lane, please utilize circle swim. Lanes can hold up to 5 people. 

If you are unwilling to share a lane, you will be asked to leave and return at another time. 


Water Walking Info

Water walking is available for those who want to walk in the pool. The small pool is available for walking from 11:00am-12:00 pm daily. There is also a walking lane in the big pool that can be used from 9:00-11:00 am. 

The pool becomes quite busy from 9:00-11:00 am, so if you are looking for a calmer time to walk, 11:00 am-12:00 pm is a great time to try Water Walking! 

Additional Pool Info

At Memorial Park Pool, we aim to offer programs to meet the needs of everyone in our community. We want this to be a fun and safe place for all who come here.

Please be kind to our staff and patrons when joining us at the pool. We take your suggestions into consideration when making the schedule, and the schedule is made to what best fits the needs of the pool and the community. We understand that we can never please everyone, but strive to make our pool and programming as inclusive as possible!
