In addition to our swimming pool and community recreation room, we also have a playground, Bocce Ball court, and access to the Woodland Gym.

Swimming Pool

Our swimming pool is a perfect place for recreational swim, lap swimming, or hosting a swim party. Amid a stunning setting, Ladera Recreation District features 2 swimming pools.

The main pool is an L-shaped pool with a 10-foot-deep diving well with a diving board. There are 6 lap lanes ranging in depth from 3 feet in the shallow end to 5 feet deep in the deep end. The pool is heated to a constant temperature of 82 degrees and is lit for early morning and evening swim.

The wading pool resides inside a fully fenced and gated area to provide a safe and secure environment for those under 5 years of age. The wading pool is kidney shaped with a depth ranging from 1 foot to 2 feet deep. Please note, there is no lifeguard stationed at the wading pool.

On Wednesdays and Sundays throughout the summer, the pool remains open until 9:00 pm for evening barbecues.

The LRD has a multi-purpose room available for community use. The room features sliding glass doors leading out on to the pool deck as well as access from the parking lot. A small kitchenette has a sink and microwave available for use. The room has a total capacity of 148 and has sliding doors to bifurcate the room into smaller meeting areas if necessary. The LRD has approximately 10 6 foot folding tables and 40 folding chairs available for use in the room. The room is commonly used for neighborhood events and meetings, fitness classes, camp activities, after school classes and private parties.

Woodland Gym

We are pleased to announce that Woodland School has graciously agreed to allow their new gym to be available to LRD members! We are very lucky to have this opportunity. Available times are Monday evenings from 6pm to 9pm and Sundays from 3pm to 9pm.


The gym is not open for random access. We have arranged recurring time slots and a few Rec members have agreed to be trained and approved to be supervisors. We hope and expect to have supervisors available for all time slots, but that may not always be possible. Also, Woodland School always has priority for any time slots and will notify us if they need the gym. The gym will be open to LRD members and guests under the same guest policy as other Rec facilities. No food or drink in the gym.

We will be asking people to sign in so we can keep track of how many people are using the gym and can also track guests. Use of the gym is a privilege and supervisors will ask anyone not behaving appropriately to leave. We ask that children under 10 be accompanied by parents at all times. You will need to bring your own equipment (basketballs etc.). We are working out the best way to notify the membership of available (or cancelled) time slots and expect to have an online calendar soon. Until then, you can see which slots currently have supervision at this link: Schedule Spreadsheet

The Gym will be open to LRD members Sunday 3pm – 9pm and Monday 6pm – 9pm. We will need to be out promptly at 9pm each night.

At the moment we’re setting up the gym for basketball on both sides but would like to assess interest in other sports including badminton, dodgeball and volleyball. Soccer is not allowed in the gym. The gym is being used other evenings for AAU basketball and/or Woodland School activities. Days and hours may change in the future.

Questions may be sent to the lead supervisor, Bob Felderman, at bob.felderman@gmail.com or email lrd-gym-supervisors@googlegroups.com.
