The Waters Are Luke

Take the Plunge

There’s no more beautifully sited swimming pool in the East Bay than Diablo’s, with its views of Mount Diablo, the golden hills, and the towering oaks. Now our pool deck will be expanded — grab a deck chair, relax, and take in the view.

Fish Out of Water

Swimming competitions began in the Diablo Lake in 1914, and Diablo’s first pool was built in its current location in 1922. For a century, families have enjoyed aquatic activities at Diablo, for fitness, competition, recreation and socializing.

Diving In

Making a splash

Now we are making the pool deck even more central to our social scene: our new three-story Family Activities & Wellness Center will be just steps away. Imagine grabbing a light breakfast poolside, or watching your kid’s swim lesson while you exercise upstairs. At night you can relax around our firepits, dine al fresco by candlelight, and take in the views. This will be a resort experience right in your neighborhood, with expanded seating areas and lush landscaping.

The Diablo Country Club pool facility is open year-round. We take pride in our family-friendly atmosphere. The main pool is a six-lane, 25-yard salt water pool kept at a temperature between 78-82 degrees. The pool is fantastic for lap swimming as well as recreational use. We are also introducing splash pad fountains for children who are 5 years of age and younger, a great place to play for kids who are not quite comfortable in the main pool.

The Diablo pool has long been a gathering place for families, and the competition of today reflects the swimming program's rich history, with the Diablo Sharks Swim Team often winning top prizes in Bay Area competition.

Our Aquatics Director and our professional swim staff provide a variety of swim programs throughout the year. In the summer children can join the Diablo Sharks Swim team; a competitive, recreational swim team for swimmers between the ages 5 and 18. Also in the summer, Diablo Country Club offers a pre-swim team program called Tiger Sharks, this program is for young children age 3 to 6 who may be thinking of joining the Diablo Sharks Swim Team in the future.

In the spring, Diablo Country Club holds swim clinics for swimmers who want to get extra stroke instruction before the summer season begins.

From September to November we offer a Fall Swim Program as an extension to our summer swim team. Participants in the Fall Swim Program will be able attend USA swimming meets and experience more extensive training with an increase in intensity and volume. For our adult swimmers, we also offer an Adult Swim Program. This program provides year-round, workouts and professional instruction for all levels 3 days each week.

Our professional coaches and swim instructors also offer private and group lessons for adults and children.
