City Extends Season for Public Swimming Pools

City Council Member David Ryu’s office announced yesterday that both the City Council and the Department of Recreation and Parks have voted to fund an extension of the city’s public swimming pool season, which was originally scheduled to end after Labor Day.  According to a press release from Ryu’s office, city pools, including those at both Pan Pacific Park and Griffith Park, will now remain open for an additional month, on weekends only, from 1-5 p.m., through September 29.

“Angelenos know that our summer weather does not end on Labor Day,” said Ryu, a member of the City Council’s Arts, Parks and River Committee. “Due to the recent heat wave, my office has partnered with the Department of Recreation and Parks to extend the summer pool season so families throughout Los Angeles can continue to cool down at Pan Pacific Park and Griffith Park…I encourage families to take advantage of these great community pools through September 29.”

General admission at city pools is $3.50 for adults ages 18-64, and $1 for children under 17 and seniors 65 and older. For more information, see
