Simpkins Family Swim Center
979 17th Avenue
Santa Cruz, CA 95062
After years of planning and construction the Simpkins Family Swim Center opened to the public in the summer of 1998, special thanks to the "Pool of
Dreamers." There are four pools, a slide, and community center
with kitchen. This site is also the location of the Parks Department main offices.
The 50-meter, 18-lane lap pool is the largest in Santa Cruz County, holding nearly 600k gallons of water. This pool is used for lap swimming, water polo and water aerobics. The water temperature is 78 degrees.
The 43k gallon warm water pool is used for therapy and recreational swimming, the temperature is kept at
88 degrees. There is a zero depth entry ramp for easy wheel chair access.
The Splash-Down pool is used to catch kids (and adults) at the bottom of the two story cork screw slide.
The fourth pool is the Splash Pool, with its splash
features and six inch depth it is perfect for tots.
By Ten" is our goal
for all children in the community!
