July is National Parks & Recreation Month, and there’s no better time to get out and play in Santa Monica.

Make the most of summer with cool camps and awesome aquatics, arts and recreation classes for tots, kids and teens, events for the whole family, and an array of amazing adult enrichment programs.

Stay cool… in the pool.
Santa Monica has two beautiful facilities, the Annenberg Community Beach House and the Santa Monica Swim Center, offering swimming fun, events, and lessons for the whole family! Register for summer swim classes here.

Enjoy a popular sport… on the pickleball court.
Come experience one of the hottest recreational crazes around. In case you haven’t heard, you can now enroll in drop-in pickleball at Santa Monica’s Memorial Park courts. Learn more. 

And that’s just to name a few activities! Keep up to date on community recreation classes and camps on our website and keep an eye on the city’s events calendar for more details on all of the above events and more.

Santa Monica is a gem year-round, but it especially shines during the summer, and we in the city’s Recreation and Arts Department encourage everyone to take advantage of all that our city has to offer. Happy recreating!
