During certain times of the year, the weather in Humboldt County doesn’t cooperate when you want to experience the wonderful outdoor activities the area has to offer. So, if the weather has put a damper on your plans but you still want to be active, head to the Arcata Community Pool and enjoy a day of swimming and sliding. It’s completely indoors, so the weather won’t interfere with your enjoyment.
No matter what type of swimming activities you enjoy, you’ll have fun in this 25-yard-long pool. The pool’s deep end is perfect for jumping and diving. The pool boasts a 1 meter diving board, as well as a poolside basketball hoop. The shallow end is only between 2 to 4 ft. deep, so little ones can always have their feet firmly planted on the pool’s bottom. There are dedicated lap lanes. The Arcata Swimming Pool even has a water slide, more than 120 ft. long, with two full 360-degree turns.
Once you’ve worked out in the pool, hit the sauna or hot tub to relax. It’s a perfect finish to a great day of fun. Have a blast enjoying vacation-time thrills all year ’round
