Summertime means swimming time
Make a splash this summer in a pool near you
This week adult night swim and recreational swim is coming to a pool near you, brought to you by the Merced Parks and Recreation Department.
Adult Night Swim will be from 7 to 8 p.m. Wednesdays at Merced High School pool, 205 W. Olive Ave. and from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the McNamara pool, 1040 Canal St. There is no charge for the adult swim program, which is part of the City's HEAL Program , Healthy Eating Active Living, to encourage adults 18 and older to engage in a healthy and active lifestyle.
Recreational swimming will begin this week at McNamara Pool, from 3 to 6 p.m. Thursday through Sunday. There also will be rec swimming at Golden Valley High School pool, 2121 E. Childs Ave., Saturdays and Sundays from 3 to 6 p.m. Cost of recreational swimming is $1 for swimmers under 18 and $2 for adults.
But it's Free Swim Fridays at McNamara Pool for kids thanks to the generosity of the Merced Satellite Rotary Club, which is covering the cost of swimming for youths to swim every Friday afternoon. Sorry adults, you may feel like a kid, but if you're over 18 it will still cost two bucks to swim.
All of the aquatics programs run through Aug. 14.
