A Facility for the Whole Community

The Ukiah Swimming Pool provides the only public access to supervised aquatic activities for the 45,000 residents of the greater Ukiah area.

The pool facility also provides the only American Red Cross certified swim lesson program.

The facility provides affordable activities for all ages including aquatic fitness classes, open swim, lap swim and swimming lessons.

The pool facility employs more than 25 lifeguards and swim instructors and provides those individuals with valuable aquatic training and work experience.

Renovation is needed immediately.

Construction Plans & Funding

The City of Ukiah Community Services Department has secured a grant from the California Department of Parks and Recreation in the amount of $500,000.

A requirement of the grant is that the community will contribute a minimum of $215,000 donations.

City staff have met with community members and developed a reconstruction plan estimated to cost $780,000, leaving approximately $280,000 to be raised through donations.

Now we need your help! It’s up to the community to keep the pool open!
