Family Swim Programs


All Ages

rECswim takes place in the Activity Pool and Splash Park. Due to low staffing, no diving boards or access to the Emery G. Weed III Lap Pool. The slide should remain open, but is up to managers discretion.

Pre-Sale and Capacity Limits:

  • On hot days, rECswim will reach capacity.
  • Pre-Sale begins 30 minutes prior to rECswim and ends 10 minutes prior to rECswim (typically Pre-Sale begins at 12pm and ends at 12:20pm).
  • Pre-Sale patrons must stand in the Pre-Sale ticket line and entry for Pre-Sale ticket holders begins 5 minutes before rECswim begins. For Pre-Sale, please keep your receipt, that is your ticket into the facility.
  • Pre-Sale does NOT guarantee entry into rECswim after Pre-Sale participants are let in the facility. After Pre-Sale patrons have been let in, every other patron must stand in line and are subject to capacity limits, even if Pre-Sale tickets were purchased.
  • While Pre-Sale patrons are allowed into the facility early, they may not get in the pools. The Lifeguards will blow their whistles when rECswim begins, allowing patrons in the pools.
  • Once capacity is reached, we will let patrons in on a one-out, one-in basis. If you have a large party, you may have to wait for another large party, or several small parties, to leave before entering the Swim Center.

The Summer/Fall of 2022 the El Cerrito Swim Center will NOT be offering any rentals or party packages for the pools or Splash Park. We are hoping our staffing situation will be different in 2023 to allow rentals and parties to be brought back to the Swim Center!
