RE: Lake Anza for a birthday party?

Have you considered the El Cerrito Swim Center? If you have a group of 10+ you only pay $2.50 per person (all ages). You don't have to reserve any space but you can reserve a picnic table if you want.

Go in there in person and talk to them, you might be pleasantly surprised. Family Swim goes from 1-4 on weekends and parking is free. Plan your party during those hours.

The best part of it is that when Family Swim time is over at 4 p.m., the lifeguards blow the whistle and BOOM your party is over ... no long goodbyes and reluctant kids. El Cerrito mom

Re: Swim club in or near Berkeley
The El Cerrito pool is really nice-it's a public swim center, not a club-but the pools (lap pool and recreation poo) are great and there's grassy area, a splash zone, lots of kids, my favorite place to swim.

Re: Swim lessons for 16 y.o. almost-beginner
I would recommend the adult beginner classes at the City of El Cerrito pool. My daughter's kid class followed that one and I noticed how the adults, including older teens and young adults, really progressed and seemed to enjoy the class. Contra Costa College also has swimming classes. -- a mom
