Los Angeles County’s Parks & Recreation Department has set its summer schedule for county swimming pools including the public pool at Val Verde Community Regional Park and lake swim beaches including Castaic Lake starting July 1.
Are you looking for more time to spend and cool off at your county swimming pool or lake swim beach this summer? Then look no further, as residents seeking relief from the hot California sun will be able to swim and relax at many county pools for a longer time-period because of a Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors budget allocation.
Many county swimming pools will be open for two extra weeks this summer, enabling families to enjoy swimming and watch their children play in the cool water during hot sunny days. Swimming lessons will also be offered, to provide water safety for children and peace-of-mind for parents.
Three county-operated lake swim beaches will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. seven days a week effective July 1 through Sept. 3. Lake swim beaches are available at Castaic Lake State Recreation Area in Castaic, Frank G. Bonelli Regional Park in San Dimas, and Santa Fe Dam Recreational Area in Irwindale.
These extended lake days will provide residents with access to explore pristine county lake swim beaches and enjoy quality time with the entire family in a safe environment.
John Wicker, director of the Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation, thanked the Board of Supervisors for its commitment and support, and encouraged families to attend county pools and lakes this summer, and to make them a summer destination.
“We are extremely happy that many of our county pools and three lake swim beaches will now enable the public to enjoy recreational water fun that is associated with summer in Southern California,” he said. “No matter what your age is, there’s a county swimming pool or lake near you, and I encourage everyone to visit and experience what summer fun can be all about.”
