Sam Brannan and Gauche Aquatic Park are tobacco free parks.
Facilities will be clean and ready for permit holder by 9am. We cannot guarantee their condition after 9am.
Reservations must be made by Thursday at 5 p.m. We apologize for the inconvenience; however, no reservations can be made over the telephone or online. Telephone inquiries concerning open dates are welcome but do not guarantee availability. All permits are issued on a firstcome, first-serve basis. In order to complete a reservation, fees must be paid in full. Facility reservations may be made up to 365 days in advance.
During periods of major construction or due to emergency repairs and maintenance, the Yuba City Parks and Recreation Department reserves the right to cancel a permit. If a mutual date for rescheduling cannot be agreed upon, a full credit/refund will be made. Refunds take approximately two weeks to process and will be mailed.
The permit holder should always attempt to resolve any reservation conflict. In the event the permit holder is unsuccessful in resolving the conflict, the Yuba City Police Department at 822-4660 may be contacted. Any other issues that may arise during the reservation, unrelated to a reservation conflict, between 9am - 2:30pm can be directed to the Parks Department at (530) 713-9179.
Once a reservation is made, a $15 processing fee will be assessed if the permit is cancelled or moved to another date. Cancellations or date changes must be made in person with a copy of the permit or proof of identification. If a permit holder was unable to use the facility due to inclement weather conditions, contact must be made with Yuba City Parks and Recreation on the next business day to receive a credit/refund. We are sorry, but a credit/refund cannot be given if notification is not made within the next business day.
