Dozens of municipal pools throughout Los Angeles are set to open for the summer season on June 10, just as schools let out and the weather heats up, city officials said Monday.

Two newly renovated aquatics facilities, one in Woodland Hills and the other in San Pedro, will also be reopening for the summer, according to the city's Department of Recreation and Parks.

The Woodland Hills Recreation Center has been undergoing renovation, with the reopening of its pool anticipated some time this summer, said Recreation and Parks spokeswoman Rose Watson.

The World War II-era Gaffey Street Pool in San Pedro, also known as the "Hey Rookie" pool, has been closed since the 1990s. It was originally set to reopen last year, but work was delayed when military tunnels were discovered.

The city's annual Operation Splash, funded with grants from Kaiser Permanente, offers services for low-income children and adults, including free swim lessons and free junior lifeguard training.

Operation Splash is designed to promote water safety and encourage exercise in the community.

Recreation and Parks operates 39 seasonal pools, as well as 16 year-round ones. The city also operates 11 open water facilities year-round.
