Stay Cool This Summer at Cathedral City’s Water Features & Recreational Swimming Program

As temperatures heat up this summer, our Cathedral City residents, visitors, and families are probably looking for places to cool off in our community!

The agreement was approved by the City Council at the regular meeting on Wednesday, March 8, 2023.

The pool, located at 69250 Dinah Shore Drive, Cathedral City, CA 92234, will be open to Cathedral City residents from Sunday, June 11 – Saturday, Aug. 5, 2023:
