Folsom, CA – Summer season at the Steve Miklos Aquatic Center begins Saturday, May 29, as recently renovated swimming pools and a new play structure opens to the public.
Recreation swim will take place daily from 1 to 5 p.m. starting May 29 through September 6. Guests will enjoy a colorful new interactive play structure, sparkling new plaster and tile on the instructional and play pools, new concrete decking, and other fun additions. The new features and repairs were part of a planned renovation project that began in 2020 and wrapped up this spring.
Other amenities available during recreation swim are the two-story water slide, a floating basketball hoop, 10 dedicated lanes for lap swimming, free-swim in the 50-meter pool (4.5-foot depth section), two diving boards, and the Poolside Café. The aquatic center’s trained lifeguarding staff are always on duty during recreation swim.
The giant floating obstacle courses return to the aquatic center Saturdays and Sundays starting July 3. Wristbands to play on the giant inflatables are $3/person per day.
