Summertime may be winding down, but there’s still plenty of warm weather to enjoy in and around Santa Clarita. While the air-conditioned cool of your brand-new home at Skyline is appealing, why not get out into the sunshine and add some water? Whether you prefer a pool, lake or water park, there are plenty of splashy spots to enjoy water sports and other water-related activities near Skyline.
If you want to stay close to home, look no further than The Lookout, Skyline’s own resort-style amenity center. With multiple pools, a splash pad and poolside lounge chairs, it’s the perfect place to watch the kids swim and play, or for you to recharge with a leisurely float under the palm trees. There are also barbecue grills and an outdoor dining area, so you can grill hamburgers for everyone after a day at the pool. Just minutes from home, The Lookout is close, convenient and very refreshing.
If you’re looking for a bigger pool to practice your backstroke in, the Santa Clarita Aquatic Center might be the place for you. It offers a 50-meter competition pool, plus a pool with multiple diving boards if you’re interested in learning a new dive, and an activity pool with a beach entry and 160-foot water slide if the kids just want to play. Outfitted with lockers, changing rooms and loads of deck space, the Santa Clarita Aquatic Center is a great place to spend a cool afternoon.
Santa Clarita Valley also has five other community pools that offer year-round swim and recreation programs – such as swimming lessons, safety classes, water workouts and team water sports – at various locations.
Take a break at the lake. Discover Castaic Lake, located just north of Santa Clarita off I-5.
