Now that Memorial Day is behind us, it’s unofficially summer.

Forget that June 21 marks the official first day.

After a cooler than usual May, residents are looking forward to sunny weather.

For relief from the hot sun, they’ll likely be looking for spots to cool off. A popular place over the years has been the South Pasadena High School pool, where parents can sign their kids up for swim lessons and take a dip with them during scheduled hours.

All levels are available – beginner, intermediate and advanced. Private lessons are also available for an additional cost.

Want to go swimming? Recreation swim sessions for the general public are available at a nominal fee of $3 per entry Monday-Friday 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. and Saturday from 1 to 3 p.m. and 5 to 8 p.m.

Floatation devices are not allowed in the pool area. Swimsuits only; not cutoffs or t-shirts can be worn in the pool.
