HOLLYWOOD - Angelenos who enjoy recreation at the Hollywood Pool will be pleased to hear the City is extending the season through the month of September, Councilmember Mitch O’Farrell and the Department of Recreation and Parks (RAP) announced today.
In a Council motion introduced this week, Councilmember O’Farrell secured funding for an extension of the Hollywood Pool hours, on weekends from 1-5 p.m., through October 1. The pool season was originally scheduled to close for the year after Labor Day weekend.
“This is the second year that my office has partnered with the department to provide even greater accessibility as the days of summer wind down” said Councilmember O’Farrell, who is also Chair of the City’s Arts, Parks, and LA River Committee. “The pool facility is becoming a point of pride for the community, and I am proud of our efforts to provide even more recreational opportunities to this part of my district.”
The entire cost to keep the pool open is $12,000 which accounts for staffing, utilities, maintenance, and supervision.
