Fun things to do this holiday season
Posted on 12/10/2019
While many City amenities are closed/reduced during the Christmas holidays, there are expanded opportunities to show off your community to visiting family and guests at the Mike Shellito Indoor Pool and Maidu Museum & Historic Site.

Maidu Museum & Historic Site - Roseville's best kept secret
Discover this unique combination of a world class museum and 6,000 year old Californian Indian village site. Located in Maidu Regional Park, the historic site offers a nature trail which takes you past ancient petroglyphs and hundreds of bedrock mortars for grinding acorns; evidence of Nisenan / Southern Maidu occupation of the site for thousands of years.

Maidu Museum & Historic Site has expanded hours of 9:00am-4:00pm on Thursday, Dec. 26-Saturday, Dec. 28. Free kids crafts are also included from 10:00am-3:00pm each day with paid admission. Admission costs are $5 for adults and $4 for senior/student/child. Discounts for family groups, military and tribal members


Mike Shellito Indoor Pool* - jump in, the water's fine
Have you visited the indoor pool? It is a great way to entertain kids (and burn off a little energy) even when the weather is rainy and cold. The indoor pool is open for recreational swim 1:00-4:00pm on Saturdays & Sundays. In addition to the regular rec. swim hours, there are additional times to make a splash on Monday, Dec. 23 and Friday, Dec. 27 from 1:00-3:30pm. Recreational swim is $5 per person, ages 2+.

If you have a little one who may not be ready to jump in on their own, then Parent & Tot Playtime may be for you. It isn't a requirement that you are a parent to enjoy this program, you could be an aunt/uncle, grandparent or any responsible adult friend. It is a requirement that you enjoy water fun with "your" little one. Tot Playtime is 10:00-11:30am on Tuesday and Thursday as well as 12:00-1:0pm on Saturday and 11:30am-1:00pm on Sunday. (There will be no playtime on Christmas Eve.) Cost of Parent & Tot Playtime is $5 for one parent/child and $3 for each additional person.

*Mike Shellito Indoor Pool is closed Sunday, Dec. 29-Sunday, Jan.5 for maintenance.

And of course, all Roseville Parks are open sunrise-one hour after sunset everyday.
