Swim For Health!
Keep Glassell Pool Open Year Round!
The Glassell Pool is due to close as a year-round pool after Labor Day in 2014. Due to city budget cuts, starting in 2014, the pool will be operated on a seasonal schedule, open only during the summer. For years, swimmers from all over the Northeast Los Angeles community have enjoyed this pool, which offers lap swim, lessons for swimmers of all ages, and swim and water ballet teams. It also provides life guard training to youths and hosts the Marshall HS swim team during practice and meets against teams like ERHS.
Friends of Glassell Pool have launched a SWIM FOR HEALTH fundraising effort. The group is looking for local corporate and community partners to help maintain and improve this neighborhood gem. The money raised will be used to supplement and enhance the Recreation and Parks budget. Your donation to the LA Parks Foundation, the City of LA Department of Recreation and Parks' fiscal agent, is 100% tax deductible. For more information on LAPF, please visit the website at www.laparksfoundation.org
. Checks are made payable to LA Parks Foundation and should be mailed to the LA Parks Foundation at 11973 San Vicente Blvd, Suite 200, Los Angeles, CA 90049 and earmarked for the Glassell Pool on the memo line.
