A wonderful olympic sized swimming pool open to the public is located adjacent to the Rose Bowl stadium. Very clean with modern facilities, used as a training facility for professionals and offers swim and diving lessons. Also has swimming lanes and high diving board platforms.

This was the site of the 1984 Olympic swimming events. They have two Olympic pools with several dive platforms. It is often full of swimmers of all ages, but 7 AM is the best time to get a lane to yourself.
