Contra Costa JCC expands pool time

The Contra Costa JCC Aquatics Center will be open year-round to all members age 18 or older for lap-swim workouts beginning this month.

A new Polar Bear Swim program will launch the center’s new availability, taking its name from the water temperature of the unheated pool.

Winter hours are 7 a.m. to dusk Monday through Friday, and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. No lifeguard will be on duty during these times. The CCJCC is at 2071 Tice Valley Blvd., Walnut Creek. For information call (925) 938-7800.
