Lake Natoma. Folsom lake has some good swimming beaches too (if the water level has not dropped too low). Discovery Park. Some of the rivers can be dangerous with cold water and fast currents.

Beales Point at Folsom Lake.

Discovery Park or Hagan Park and at Watt ave. on the American River but beware of the current and cold water.

When are you going? In the spring the snow melt makes water even in the valley cold. Few years back it was so cold they had to shut down a bunch of the river rafters.

Lake Tahoe is not to miss, just a short drive from Sacramento. :)
