Public Swim

Cooling off at the pool is a great way to beat the Southern California heat! 

Public swim is a time set aside for recreational swimming for swimmers of all ages to enjoy.  We offer public swim at two of our pool locations, the CRC and CHS, but they are not always open at the same time and times do vary depending on the day so please pay close attention to the schedule.  Before coming to the pool, we ask that you look over the pool rules which can be found below.

  AGE    All (Children 7 and younger must be accompanied by an adult)  


0-12 years, 55+ years            



13-54 years



(All Ages)


*Cash or check ONLY            

[How do I know if I am a Resident?]

Everyone entering the pool gates must pay the fee.

  Check in at the Lifeguard Office before entering the pool.

Public Swim Pass

To make visiting to the pool easier for frequent swimmers, we offer a punch card system for Residents of Temecula.  Bring your proof of residency to purchase the card (during Public Swim) and after that, you can JUST bring your punch card.  Buying a punch card is the equivilant of buying 10 visits to the pool and you get an extra visit FREE! 


A perfect option for parents who have kids that can go to the pool on their own.



To purchase a Public Swim Punch Card, please bring your Proof of Residency and exact change to the lifeguard at the window during Public Swim.

Pool Rules

We have pool rules that we ask every swimmer to follow for their own safety and the safety of others. If a swimmer cannot follow our rules they may be asked to leave.

Please look over the pool rules before coming to the pool and discuss them with any swimmers who may be accompanying you.
