Your City Pools, a Haven Amid the Pandemic


Santa Rosa’s two spacious outdoor pools with their cool, clear water have always been alluring and busy, and that has been especially true recently. Since springtime, the pools at Ridgway Swim Center and Finley Aquatic Center have hosted more than 90,000 visitors – an impressive feat, when also maintaining many extra safety protocols and precautions to make it all happen! This attendance figure includes teaching 4,321 individuals to swim, a skill that once learned is rarely forgotten and is essential to staying confident and safe in and around the water. Here’s how Santa Rosans have enjoyed their City pools these past few months:
