 This weekend’s temperatures are expected to climb into triple digits.
Thankfully, the City of Ripon has several places to beat the heat. Especially for families.
The Ripon Aquatics Center opened earlier this week for public swimming.
Located at Ripon High, 301 N. Acacia Ave., the pool is open from 1 to 4 p.m., Mondays through Fridays, and noon to 4 p.m. on Saturdays.
Cost is $60 for individual pass (good from now through Aug. 11) or $160 for family season pass (four people, $35 for any additional family member).
Individual passes are also available, including $5 per day or $40 per month.
The interactive water feature at Mistlin Sports Park is another cool-down option.
Located at 1201 Ripon Road. – alongside the children’s play area with splash pad – the pulsating water play area is open Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays, from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., during the summer months. And it’s free.
The fountains were inactive during the height of the drought but reopened in recent years.
