You see the advertising signs for miles on the interstate. Really, you have to go and see it! Google it first for directions. There may be signs on the highway, but we didn't see any in town. There is another swimming park (lake) nearby. Very interesting place. Bring a picnic lunch. There are picnic tables with a cover.

Loved this place although water a bit cold, wonderfully clear blue water, popular spot for divers who are training. Situated so close to town, you wouldnt know it was there!

Spend 15 minutes and stop here. It's not far off Route 66, and it's a neat little spot, which is free. How lucky Santa Rosa is to have such a nice place, and a great park next door too.

Now an aside to you divers. PLEASE... this is not your private spot. I'm handicapped, and you folks were rudely taking up the entire walkway in many areas, forcing me to go around you. The sidewalks and steps are not just yours, they're for everyone to enjoy. Please share and leave room, and don't expect others to go around you. Don't leave your gear covering the entire walkway and steps. Make room, please, and please... be considerate of others.

Really cool during the middle of the week when no one is there. Weekends are busy with lots of divers.

City of Lakes is a great triathlon and jumping in the Blue Hole was a lot of fun. Also had a good time with the kiddos swimming at Park Lake.
