Amazing public pools in such a great locationAt the far south end of the Rose Bowl Stadium parking lot theres two large pools and one small one.Ive been here twice having had an uncrowded and enjoyable time on both occasions.The pools are well maintained and while popular with a full parking lot there still seems to be adequate space to swimGreat after taking in the local loop trails especially in warmer weatherWhile in the area kids may also enjoy going to the Pirate Park. The whole family may partake as well at the nearby Brookside Park.

Back in 2009 when I was eight years old this was one of the first places where my father taught me how to swim. What a fun pool and very big. I had some great times here when I was younger.The only funny thing is there was a middle-aged man with a suntan and wearing sunglasses who used to walk backwards and glide for exercise all around the edge of the pool in a full circle for hours and he used to ram into us by accident without looking and my father used to tell the guy to stop stop stop Its still funny to this day.Anyway I had lots of fun here when I was a kid.

A lifesaver. Community hub elite competitive swim facility. The pool has rec or family swim hours for non members. For that people need to line up its first come first serve which gets busy in the summer especially and is not as seamless as it would be if you were lap swimming or what have you as a member - hence the poor reviews you may see. Be kind to staff and any people of color you see in the pool there are a few entitled elders here who still think pools should be segregated. Other than that silliness a perfect place for all.

One of a few places has an Olympic size pool. There are two Olympic size pools one is mainly used for competitive swimming the other for classes and recreation. Its relatively busy throughout the day very busy during the prime hour early morning after school many swim water polo diving aqua aerobic therapy programs etc. are offered for all ages but mostly for kids.I think the rate here is reasonable monthlyannual pass classes and lessons. A day pass for recreational pool is 2-3 which only allows to swim in a small area shallow end of the recreational pool. This is more for parents play with little kids not for swim practice with kick boards or other water toys which are not allowed. A day pass for swimming is 15 raised the rates recently please check the website which allow to swim at lap swim lane either Olympic or recreational pool during the public lap swim hour.The water temperature is consistent Olympic pool 78-80F. The recreation pool is very warm at 82 to 86F. The recreational pool often closes due to contamination at last minute with no prior notice. It happens usually during the summer break when there are many young kids in the swim lessons.If I remember correctly the make-up policy for missing classes only with doctors note. No other excuses like vacation are accepted. When the pool is closed due to unexpected contamination or maintenance automatic make-up or credit.A small pro shop at the location its convenient but watch that all items are NO REFUND some items even NO RETURN. No warning or no inform to customers about their policy in advance.

Bring your kids here to swim and improve to a competing level or parents can just come here to swim when time allows. This place has been around for a long time so feel safe bringing your kids here. Overall would recommend it. For some it may be pricy but well worth the money if you want your kids to get interested in something other than just gaming. These pictures were taken in late November 2021 and the water was heated at 8AM hence the steamy pool.Im a General Contractor and my company is at InnovativeConstructions.US. I try to provide information to anyone who can use it. Hope they help. Maybe let me know your thoughts.
