Pool Closure Impacts District Aquatics

It is with regret we announce that North Highlands Recreation and Park District will not be offering swim lessons and recreation swim this summer. After 50 years, the swimming pool utilized for offering these programs, located on local school district property, has been closed due to on-going, costly maintenance and repairs. Several neighboring park and recreation districts offer swim programs, so be sure to check them out.

Drought Restrictions Influence District Water Use

The severe drought affecting the State of California is now entering its third year. The impact on the Recreation and Park District has been tremendous. Irrigation in our parks has been scaled back to meet local Water District regulations. Also, the splash pad located at Freedom Park will not be turned on again this summer. As soon as drought restrictions mandated by local Water Districts are relaxed, this popular amenity at Freedom Park will be operational again.
