This block of time is a chance for parents to swim and assist their child in the baby pool, with a lifeguard provided from the pool deck. Parents must be in the pool with the child at all times. This is not a class, but a dedicated time where young children can become adjusted to the water in a more relaxed atmosphere. SWIM DIAPERS ARE MANDATORY for non potty-trained children.

Herkner Memorial Pool
Herkner PoolCity councilman, member of the Port Commission and twice mayor, Sidney D. Herkner had an illustrious career in Redwood City government. During his second term as mayor, the Redwood Shores development got underway, and the Community Activities Building on Roosevelt Avenue and the swimming pool at Hoover School were constructed.

Herkner, who died in 1976, left the city a $100,000 bequest, which was combined with monies from the state to renovate the pool at Community Park. Renamed the Herkner Memorial Swim Center in his honor, the remodeled, solar-heated facility was dedicated on May 16, 1981.
The Herkner pool is one of the two facilities that house Swim lessons that the Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department put on each year. The Swim lessons are for those of all ages with classes for Adults and Parent-Tot. The Herkner Pool is open Monday thru Saturday with adult lap swim from noon to 1pm. Open swim for youths is extremely popular with many child care facilities using the pools too. See above for rates and times.
