Each summer season, County Parks looks forward to providing the Cuyama Valley community with a way to cool off, exercise and play! The Centeno Aquatics Complex in New Cuyama boasts a four-lane by 25-yard pool along with an 18-inch deep wading pool and spray structure. The pools are staffed with American Red Cross-Certified lifeguards and are free five days a week from 11:00AM – 12:30PM for lap swim and from 1:00PM – 5:00PM for open rec swim.

Swim lessons and aqua aerobics are available for a minimal fee and are a fun way to improve your fitness level and comfort in the water. Schedules will be posted at the pool as the season approaches. We look forward to seeing you in the water!
