Swim Fee & All Swim Pass

The All Swim Pass can be used whether you want to lap swim, water walk or enjoy recreation swim. You can come by yourself or bring friends and family. The All Swim Pass is flexible to meet your needs - one entry required person, per visit.

Take advantage of savings opportunities with the pass option that works for you! 

Public Swim Entry and All Swim Pass

With the rising costs related to operating and maintaining the aquatic centers and the City of San Ramon's budget shortfall for the 2024-25 fiscal year, an increase to the public swim entry fee is necessary. For more information on the City of San Ramon's budget shortfall, please visit
