Beat The Heat This Summer!

Summertime means creating memories that will last a lifetime and of course, lots of fun activities hosted by the City of Visalia’s Parks and Recreation Department.


Be sure to mark your calendar as you won’t want to miss the entertainment and excitement of this year’s fun summer events!

Sponsored by Summer Night Lights, free Family Night Swim events are being offered throughout the summer on Saturdays starting on June 22nd and continuing through July 27th from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Mt. Whitney High School Pool (900 S. Conyer Street). Don’t let the hot summer weather prevent you and your family from spending quality time together outside. Cool off on a Saturday night and enjoy the pool. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Then, join the Visalia Parks and Recreation Department and the Visalia Police Department for a fun time in the pool with the return of Belly Flops with the Cops, part of the Community Pool Party Series! Participate in fun relays and games with the cops or compete in fun competitions for awards. Awards will be presented for best trick, belly flop and cannonball. Swimmers of all ages are invited to this free event on Saturday, June 29th from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the Redwood High School Pool (1001 W. Main Street) for a chance to win big trophies or to just cool off in the pool with our cops. This free event is sponsored by the Visalia Police Officer’s Association and the Visalia Police Managers & Supervisors and is open to swimmers of all ages.

Finally, plan to attend the Community Pool Parties series!  Community Pool Parties are a great way to beat the Central Valley heat. Everyone is invited to jump in and enjoy the water during this lifeguard supervised pool time. These free events will take place from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the Redwood High School Pool and are open to swimmers of all ages.
