Tehachapi's Public Pool Opens for 2015


The long awaited seasonal reopening of the Tehachapi pool at the Dye Natatorium is coming in February. It all starts with the Annual Penguin Plunge fundraiser Jan. 31, 2015.

All are invited to join other Dye Natatorium staff and fans for a dip into the pool. Registration begins at 11:30 a.m. at the Dye Natatorium located at 400-B South Snyder, Tehachapi. Hot drinks, cookies and t-shirts will be on hand, as well.

Following the Penguin Plunge, the Tehachapi Valley Recreation and Parks District is offering classes for students ages 16 on up in the evenings from 7:15 to 8:15 p.m.

Marti’s Water Aerobics, a low-impact workout, is going to be every Monday and Wednesday.

Deep Water Aerobics, with instructor Kathleen, will return at the same time in the deep end. “Flotation belts are provided, so come on out and regain motion, tone up those muscles and have a good time while you do it,” Kathleen encourages.

Tuesday and Thursday evenings Aqua Zumba, another low-impact aquatic fitness class, is being offered, with Francine instructing students.

In addition, Lap Swimming will still be offered Monday through Friday from 5-7 a.m. and Monday through Thursday 8:30- 9:30 p.m., and Saturday 11 a.m.-2:30 p.m. The lap swim can be enjoyed by folks 14 years and older.

“Most of our classes are on a drop- in basis, or there is monthly pass with a savings, and a winter/spring pass for

$200. Plus, we offer a senior discount of 10 percent, as well as a 10 percent military discount,” LeAnn Williams, recreation supervisor said.But the pool is not just for adults only. Parent and child swim lessons will be offered again for children 6 months to 1 ½ years old, 2-3 years old, and preschool aquatics lessons for children ages 4-5. Classes begin in June for these. “Please check out our website and/or come on in and get a brochure,” Williams said. “So, we can get everyone signed up in the correct classes.”

Remember you don’t have to know you want to take the Aerobic classes or participate in the Lap Swim until that day. You can show up and pay the drop-in fee of $5, or you can get a monthly pass.

For full information on all of the prices and programs that the TVRPD is offering you can go to or go to the TVRP office located at 490 West D St, Tehachapi. 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday, or call (661) 822-3228.

“Don’t forget, we are still looking for more certified lifeguards, so give us a call,” Williams encourages.
