Local Swimming Pool Options

Today it was over 104 degrees here. Glendale residents trying to stay cool are hampered by the fact that Glendale hasn't had a proper community swimming pool since the Verdugo Swim Stadium was demolished in 1988. There is a proposal to add a pool to Pacific Park, but that would come far too late for this summer's heat waves. In the meantime, here are some aquatic options.

Thanks for the info, Scott. I went to the Verdugo pool today. It's a great place to get in a few laps and cool off in this ridiculous weather. I didn't encounter one screaming child, and that's always nice.

I was prepared to pay the $10 admission but it was free....maybe because of the heatwave?

Wow, that's great. The L.A. pools are always packed with screaming kids.

I called the Verdugo pool today and they are back to $10 for non-residents. D'oh!

The Glendale YWCA just reopend their pool. They are across the street from Whole Foods AND you don't need to become a member AND you are supporting the YWCA.
