The Redding Aquatic Center provides water-based recreation, fitness and instruction to almost 100,000 visitors each season. The popular summer camp programs service a total of 170-plus kids per day from June through August. Other programs offerings run the gamut from traditional sports to self-improvement and skills-development classes.
Art in Public Places - The Community Services Department and the Art In Public Places Committee administer the "Art in City Hall" exhibits, The Sculpture Park at City Hall and commission various works for public facilities throughout Redding. Examples of these commissions include the "Balancing Act" sculpture in Caldwell Park (affectionately known as "The Bronze Boys"), the tile mosaic "Donor Wall" at the Redding Aquatic Center and the hammered-copper relief installed at Vista Ridge Neighborhood Park.
