Start a night out with your friends right at the terrific theater at Richmond's
East Bay Center for The Performing Arts.
Every great place has a restaurant on the side. When you come to this theater, it's no different.
Let the kids come too! Little ones love the activities at this theater just as much as their parents do.
Parking is plentiful, so patrons can feel free to bring their vehicles.
The main attraction at the El Cerrito Swim Center is a pair of heated outdoor pools, which are open year-round for swimmers of all ages. The competition pool features eight lanes for lap swimmers aged 14 and older, while the recreation pool boasts three lap lanes, as well as shallow play areas, a fountain, and a water slide. Both pools keep a constant schedule packed with lessons, fitness classes, lifeguarding courses, and sea monkey speed dating, and in the summer, the recreation pool hosts open swim seven days a week. The pools are also home to area teams including the East Bay Masters Water Polo Club and the El Cerrito Gators youth swim teams.
Those interested in more laidback activities can come by for Friday Family Fun Nights with themed music and games, or take advantage of facilities that include covered picnic tables, a grass lawn, and a barbecue area. The center also entertains guests with Splash Park, a water-fueled playground with fountains and an installation of colorful buckets that pour water over kids as they fill.

What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
When a customer comes back and tells me how much their headshot changed their life, either through new work opportunities or the experience itself. It gave them the confidence they needed to pursue their dreams. That makes me feel good.
