In the best interest of the community, the pool will be closed for the 2020 season (see below)
The Board of Directors reluctantly made the decision to cancel the 2020 pool season in light of the continuing effects of Covid-19 and increased spread of the virus in Siskyou and Shasta counties. The decision was based on the serious concerns about the health, safety, risk, and liability for our popular Community Pool patrons, and after considerable deliberation & input from regional health agencies. The District's mission has always been to provide safe, healthy, & fun recreational opportunities and facilities for our youth, families, and the many visitors to our community. It saddens the Board and staff to have to make this difficult decision. The District appreciates the continued community support and understanding.
The renovated, naturally heated, Dunsmuir Community Pool is the largest swimming pool in Siskiyou County. At 75 feet x 150 feet, it provides ample room for kids to play and adults to swim.
In addition, the pool hosts swim lessons, adult water aerobics classes, and adult lap swim are during periods when the pool is closed for regular swim activities.
The pool may also be rented for private parties and events for a very moderate fee.
The pool season normally runs from mid-June to late August.

- ADA compliant changing rooms and restrooms
- Wheelchair and tiny tot ramp into the pool
- Shaded relaxation area that serves as a comfortable place for parents to watch their children
