This is a time for children and families to practice their swimming skills or just have fun. The entire leisure pool is open, including the lazy river, slide and spray features.

Work Out Swim Times

Lap Swim

This is an opportunity for swimmers to train and exercise in the lap pool. Lifeguards make every effort to manage the lap lanes and group swimmers according to ability and workout needs. Lanes are shared and circle swimming is required in lanes with 3 or more swimmers. There is no minimum age requirement, but participants must be swimming laps. A minimum of 3 lanes are available for all lap swims.

Aquathon and Silent Auction to Support 2nd Grade Swim Lesson Program

On Saturday, November 15, 2014, the Mendocino Coast Recreation and Park District (MCRPD) will be celebrating its 30th Annual Aquathon and Silent Auction at the C. V. Starr Community Center/Sigrid and Harry Spath Aquatic Facility (300 S. Lincoln St., Fort Bragg). Funds generated will be used to support learn-to-swim programs for area youth, such as the 2nd Grade Swim Lesson Program, and to support other community recreation programs.


Support is welcome as part of the Aquathon or the silent auction. To pledge or donate money through the Aquathon, connect with a participant that is swimming or walking laps. Not sure if you know anyone that is swimming or walking laps? The C. V. Starr Community Center front desk staff can point you in the direction of participants that would welcome your pledges or donations.


The Silent Auction is looking to be bigger than ever this year! Taking place at the C. V. Starr Community Center on Saturday November 15th, the bidding starts at 9am and ends at 5pm. With over 90 items, there will be lots to choose from. This is a great way to support a good cause and get a jump on your holiday gift shopping.


For more information on the Aquathon or silent auction, contact the MCRPD at the C. V. Starr Community Center front desk.
