The summer swim season is being extended into the early fall thanks to funding provided by Los Angeles City Councilman Mitch O’Farrell, 13th District.
In a motion introduced on Aug. 23, O’Farrell secured funding to extend the hours at the Hollywood facility from 1 to 5 p.m. on weekends through Sept. 29. The pool season was originally scheduled to close for the year after Labor Day weekend.
“I am proud to partner with the Department of Recreation and Parks to provide even greater accessibility as the days of summer season wind down,” O’Farrell said. “The Hollywood Pool is a point of pride for the community and a wonderful gathering place for neighbors who want to swim laps, cool off, enjoy the waterslide or just soak up some sun. I am proud of our efforts to provide even more recreational opportunities in this part of my district.”
The facility, which was renovated several years ago using Prop K funds, includes a water slide, three shaded bleachers, a new lifeguard chair and California-friendly landscaping.
Recreational swimming hours after Labor Day will be from 1 to 5 p.m. on weekends. The general admission cost is $4 for adults ages 18-64 and $1 for children under 17 and seniors 65 and older.
A similar extension has been arranged for the pools at Pan Pacific Park and Griffith Park courtesy of funding from the office of Los Angeles City Councilman David Ryu, 4th District.
The Hollywood Pool is located at 1122 Cole Ave. For information, call the pool office at (323)460-7030, or visit laparks.org.
