Free Swimming Days

This is almost over..my bad...but there are free swim days every Monday and Wednesday evenings from 6:45pm to 8:15pm. It is located at Johnson Pool-Vernon and D street in downtown Roseville. It goes until August 6th.

From I-15 take Riverside Exit. Continue on Riverside until the end and then turn left on Vernon Street. Turn left on D Street the pool is on the corner.

Yep totally free. Come swim. They cap it around 120 people, but lately they haven't reached capacity. They have two slides to go down in the deep end. Lifeguards monitoring all over the pool. They have a one foot section that is great for little kids to walk around in. They also have a 2, 3, 6, and 10 foot sections all roped off. Fun for all!

Whitney Oaks Park

Wildcat Blvd. & Whitney Ranch Parkway in Rocklin, CA.
Off the I-65.Blue Oaks exit. Turn east. Turn left on Sunset. Right on W. Stanford Ranch Rd. Left on Wildcat. Right on Whitney Ranch Pkwy. Make a U-Turn where you can, after you see the park.

This is a fun park, kind of out of the way, but not very crowded so it is worth the drive. It has fun water features that dump and spray! The playground is HUGE! This is the biggest and tallest playground I have ever seen at a park. The big kid playground is three stories in some spots. The slides come down from that high. It has lots of paths around and plenty of things to walk on and run around. It has a cute small kid playground with horses to ride, swings, and plenty to climb on and slide down. It has many benches that are covered and you can reserve the BBQ areas as well. Fun for all ages.

Here is a link about the park on the parks and recreation website: click here.

Lone Tree Park

West Oaks Blvd. and Lone Tree Blvd, Rocklin, CA

From I-65 take the Blue Oaks exit. Turn left on Lone Tree. The park will be on the right behind the softball fields. Parking is a little bit away from the playground. I am thinking they are adding on to it? If you have a four wheeler you can park on the dirt right next to the playground. But we all need some exercise. :)

This park has three baseball fields, a soccer field, bathrooms, a fun playground with tall slides and fun ladders and a cool swing teeter totter thing. The best of all it has water features galore! It has many great sprinklers to run through and fun squirt gun horses to spray at others who want to get wet. Here is a link to the Rocklin parks and rec. page about the park as well:http://www.rocklin.ca.gov/government/service_n_facility/parks_n_facilities/parks/community_parks/lone_tree_park.asp

This is a popular park when its hot outside! Fun for all.
