Go swimming for free at these 7 SF pools on Friday

Published 2:27 pm PDT, Thursday, August 15, 2019

With uncharacteristically hot temperatures scorching the Bay Area this week, you may be feeling a little sweaty — and therefore experiencing an urge to jump into a cool body of water. If so, you’re in luck: The San Francisco Recreation and Park Department has announced that today and Friday, you can swim at seven San Francisco pools for free.

ALSO: Summer nights are getting hotter in San Francisco

Time is running out to make it one of these pools today (most close at 4 p.m.), except for Mission Pool, which will be open tonight from 6-7:30 p.m., and Sava Pool, which will be open from 6:30-8:30 p.m. However, Balboa Pool, Coffman Pool, Hamilton Pool, Martin Luther King Jr. Pools, Mission Pool, North Beach Pool and Sava Pool will all be open Friday for your free swimming whims.

Mid-day lap swims have been cancelled, and there will be no impact on lessons or rentals.

ALSO: I went snorkeling in Oakland. It was hella dope.

Here is Friday’s free pool schedule:

Balboa Pool: Noon to 4 p.m. (parent-tot swim time cancelled)
Coffman Pool: Noon to 3:30 p.m.
Hamilton Pool: Noon to 3:30 p.m.
Martin Luther King Jr. Pools: Noon to 4 p.m.
Mission Pool: Noon to 3 p.m.
North Beach Pool: Noon to 4 p.m.; 5:30-7 p.m. (warm pool only)
Sava Pool: Noon to 4 p.m; 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.
