Coming Attraction: L.A. pools open for biz
It's almost summer, folks, and Saturday, June 20, marks opening day for L.A. city pools.
We had a great time last summer, taking CC to the pool at Pan Pacific Park. It's clean and well-tended by the hyper-vigilant lifeguards (yeah, I even got a stern talking to for taking a pic of my child splashing with her dad. Apparently, close-ups are fine, but other 'rents may not want their kid in your frame.). And it's also really easy on the wallet -- especially if you have a library card.
Children 17 and under are free, and adults (18-64) are -- wait for it -- $2.50. That's cheaper than a grande vanilla nonfat latte! (Not that I'm forking over for too many of those these days.) Adults with a library card get a 50-cent discount. And seniors 65+ are free!
So swimsuit up, dig out the loose change from under your couch cushions and start splashing, L.A.!
