In the Sacramento area, pools and water parks are allowed to open this Friday, but many are reportedly delaying the reopening. 

According to Good Day Sacramento, many pools and water parks are struggling to address the issue of social distancing with reopening. One of these places is Roseville’s Golfland Sunsplash, which as of now, does not have a tentative opening date. Many Roseville residents, like mother Julie Stoffle, are lamenting the confusion surrounding water play attractions reopening. “So many of the things we had in place aren’t available any longer,” Julie Stoffle said. She continued, “I think we’ll probably wait a little bit and see how things are going.”

“There are some guidelines but not as much as we would like to see,” said Pam Allen, a spokesperson with Roseville Parks and Rec. Allen says the city will not open its indoor pool until June 22, and that’s just for lap swimming. “Water parks are a whole other level of craziness. I don’t know how you’d keep six feet of distance,” Allen said.
