The Coolest Water Parks and Pools in Town

EAST BAY, CA – Wondering what to do on a hot summer day? Go to the pool and play! These local aquatic centers and parks are perfect for a day of fun in the sun.

The Wave at Emerald Glen Park in Dublin is the area’s newest aquatic complex. The 31,000 square foot facility includes indoor and outdoor pools, multiple water slides and a large play structure where you’re sure to get soaked.

Walnut Creek’s Larkey Swim Center recently completed a major renovation and added a new spray playground. Clarke Memorial Swim Center features an inflatable pool obstacle course.

The fun family-oriented Robert Livermore Community Center Pool also features an interactive play structure and water slide.

You’ll find a twisty water slide and mushroom-shaped waterfall at the San Ramon Olympic Pool and Aquatic Center. More water fun can be found at Rancho San Ramon’s splash pad.
