Long Beach, CA – The City of Long Beach Department of Parks, Recreation and Marine (PRM) is pleased to announce the reopening of the Silverado Park Pool, located at 1540 W. 32nd Street, after a months-long closure for maintenance repairs. 

“I’m very happy to see Silverado Park Pool back open to provide low-cost programs and recreation for residents,” said Mayor Robert Garcia. “City facilities like this have a positive impact on our neighborhoods and the lives of our youth. 

The Silverado Park Pool closed to the public on Dec. 20, 2021, so that regularly scheduled annual maintenance could be performed. During that time, issues with the pool filtration system were discovered. The pool remained closed until the necessary replacement parts were received in late February and the repairs were subsequently made. 

“The Silverado Park Pool is an integral asset to the West Long Beach community, and I am pleased to see it reopen for our residents,” said Seventh District Councilmember Roberto Uranga. 

The Silverado Park Pool was built in 1961 and renovated in 2007 with funding from the 2000 and 2002 State Park Bond Acts and the Federal Urban Park and Recreation Recovery program.   

Silverado Park Pool is open
at varying times on Monday, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday for lap swimming; Monday, Wednesday and Sunday for water exercise classes; and Saturdays for swimming lessons. More information is available by calling 562.570.1721 or visiting the Silverado Park Pool
