Grab sunscreen, goggles and a beach towel and get ready to dive into swim season at several Inland Empire parks.

San Bernardino County parks christened the summer swim season with a ribbon-cutting ceremony Friday, May 24, at Glen Helen Regional Park, home to new rodeo-themed waterslides and a splashpad, as well as new restrooms, picnic shelters and more.

County parks offers swimming at Glen Helen, 2555 Glen Helen Parkway in San Bernardino; Yucaipa Regional Park, 33900 Oak Glen Road in Yucaipa; and Lake Gregory Regional Park, 24171 Lake Drive in Crestline. The pool is closed at Cucamonga-Guasti Regional Park, 800 N. Archibald Ave. in Ontario, but the splash pad is open.
