Santa Barbara’s Wading Pools Open for the Summer

West Beach, Oak Park and Ortega Park facilities offer swim hours through late August

Both of Santa Barbara’s wading pools are open for free swim for youths age 7 or younger through late August.

The West Beach Wading Pool, located next to Los Baños Pool at 401 Shoreline Drive, is open through Friday, Aug. 17, thanks to a generous grant from the Rotary Club of Santa Barbara Sunrise. West Beach pool hours are noon to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.

The Oak Park Wading Pool at 300 W. Alamar Ave. is open from noon to 5 p.m. daily through Sunday, Aug. 26.

Both wading pools are staffed by city lifeguards; however, children younger than age 7 must be accompanied by a parent or responsible person age 18 or older. Children must wear bathing suits, and those not potty-trained must wear approved swim diapers.

Free swim is also available for children age 13 or younger at the Ortega Park Pool, 600 N. Salsipuedes St., from 1:30 to 3 p.m. weekdays through Aug. 17. All ages may swim for a fee ($1 child/$4 adult) at Los Baños Pool, 2:15 to 3:45 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

For more information on swim programs and pool hours, call 805.966.6110.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
