June 5, 18 Comments. Swimmers arriving at the Glassell Park Swimming Pool have recently been greeted by an unwelcome sight: Budget cuts will force the Recreation and Parks Department to close lgassell year-around, municipal pools in Glassell Park, Pacoima and San Pedro for much of the year. Department spokeswoman Andrea Epstein said the three pools join others across the city that operate tlassell a seasonal schedule, which means they will be open only when surrounding public schools are closed for the summer months.
Once August 12 comes up, the Glassell Park pool on Verdugo Road will close and be drained until the following summer. Kind of nuts, since Aug and Sept are usually the hottest months. And yes, pools help keep kids in the nieghborhood out of trouble, I know the Echo Park Deep pool does.
There should be a big protest about this. A petition has already been going around the Glassell Park swimmers, but it would be good if that became more organized. This is really disappointing! Close an outlet that helps prevent both! We need to find cuts elsewhere instead of constantly taking away from our children!
Tell JB glasselo governor that the state union contracts must be renegotiated now. Tell your mayor Tony Valare Antonio Villaragosa to renegotiate the city union contracts now.
This pool has been a safe haven for my nephews and nieces for years and keeps them from becoming rebellious and hitting the streets looking for something to do; which we know can turn bad. Please call your councilman immediately. Reyes will take over Glassell Park gladsell of July 1 but this is a city issue so call all the councilmen!
They take these calls seriously!
