Last weekend, I partnered with the Department of Recreation and Parks, encouraging the public to keep water safety in mind to prevent life-threatening accidents. According to the California Department of Developmental Services, drowning is the leading cause of injury-related deaths among children ages five and under. Learning to swim and practicing water safety in a supervised environment saves lives.
That is why I was proud to partner on this community initiative to provide accessible and life-saving water recreation to all ages in the community of all abilities.
I thank our partners and the Department of Recreation and Parks staff for providing these opportunities that make use of our treasured aquatic facilities and teach our kids life-saving swim skills.
Summer schedules for each pool may vary. For more information regarding pool use and to locate an LA City pool, please visit www.swimla.org or call the Aquatics Division at (323) 906-7953.
