Swimming in Glassellland

A view of the Glassellland sign is another reason to spend some time at the Glassell Park Recreation Center and pool.

The Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks will reopen nearly 30 of its pools today, just in time for an anticipated heat wave.

Pools will be open from 2 p.m.-6 p.m. weekdays and 1 p.m.-5 p.m. weekends through Sunday.

Pools will become available for swim lessons, aquatic sports and the junior lifeguard program Saturday. All participants must follow COVID-19 guidelines.

Pools will be open 10 a.m.-7 p.m. or 11 a.m.-7 p.m. weekdays and 1-5 p.m. weekends from June 21-Aug. 14. From Aug. 15-Sept. 6, pools will be open 2- 6 p.m. weekdays and 1-5 p.m. weekends.

The list of the pools that will be reopening will be released Monday. The department expects to reopen more pools as summer progresses.
