This park offers picnic areas, restrooms, a par course, and a beach for swimming/wading on the Russian River. This summer, the beach will re-open for daily swimming by July 1, 2016 through Labor Day. We recommend arriving early on weekends as the parking lot can fill by mid-day. Limited off-street parking is available nearby.

On Labor Day weekend, September 3-5, Healdsburg Veterans Memorial Beach again will host the popular “Zoom Flume,” an inflatable water slide introduced at the Healdsburg Water Carnival in August. The Zoom Flume is like a giant Slip ‘N Slide that lets riders whoosh down the steep, sandy beach into the Russian River, where they then can play on a smaller, floating water slide. Hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and the cost to ride is $5 per person. (Children must be 6 or older.)
