Lagoon admission is free. Inflatable playground admission is $10 per person (children 6 and older and adults) or $60 for a season pass. Parking is $7 or free with a Regional Parks membership.

Memorial Beach is open for lifeguarded swimming on the Russian River from July through Labor Day. A temporary dam creates a calm, wide swimming area just south of the historic, steel-truss Memorial Bridge. Swim zones are clearly marked and watched by lifeguards daily. Admission is free. Parking is $7 or free with a Regional Parks membership. The long, sandy beach is a short drive to downtown Healdsburg's restaurants and shops.
