Mapping Swimming Year Round in LA

Oct 13, 2009 by Lisa Newton

Los Angeles and Southern California are famous for our hundreds of miles of lovely beaches which face the Pacific, running the length of our western coast. But even here, the temperatures in the winter get a little cool to swim in the Pacific every day. Accordingly, it rained yesterday, which reminds us that rain does occasionally fall in Southern California.

Swimming and swimming facilities are a major component of everyday life, and for every age group. Unlike many parts of the nation, Los Angeles is rich in swimming pools– 59 to be exact. But to find one that suits both your desire and needs, you’ll need a map to figure out which pool wets your whistle.

What map you might ask yourself? Why a Travelin’ Local interactive map of all of the Los Angeles Department of Parks and Recreation swimming facilities:

When making this map, I used two different symbols. The Seasonal Pools represents the seasonal pools and the Year round pools represents the year-round pools. So when you click on the link on the map, you’ll find the name, address, phone number, and web link for that particular pool.

When summer gets closer I’ll feature this map again; but for now, with winter right around the corner, it’s great to know that there’s a year round swimming pool nearby. All you have to do is bookmark our site to get 24/7 easy access for mapping information.
