Hansen Dam Aquatic Center


NEVER AGAIN. For 3 years we have lived 5 minutes from here and drove past it every day. It had been at the top of my “when we have a free day list” the entire time. Last year year we attempted to go during the first week of September when it was in the high 90s, NOPE closed for the season. Are you kidding me?!! Is this SoCal or the North east? We read the signs, checked the prices ($15 for a Cabana) and planned to come back this season.

So fast forward to today and my girlfriend and I were finally able to take a vacation day together, a total rarity. We packed up a lunch, drinks and our iPads so we could relax in a cabana still get some work done and go for the occasional swim while we spent a chill relaxing day at our community “pool”. Of course it was not that simple.

First: The swim suit police got me. Yeah that’s right they have SWIN SUIT POLICE. Apparently my knee high gym shorts were not acceptable. No explanation given. Right there I should have said screw this place, but we went home and I changed to come back.

Second: We return to find out this wasteland decided to DOUBLE their cabana rates from last season. Mind you this is a beautiful Wednesday afternoon and not ONE cabana had been rented by noon, clearly your price gouging increase was a brilliant decision.

Never again. I wouldn’t p**s in this pool if you let me in for free.

Thanks for the relaxing day by the water. Guess I should have just drove to the real beach that’s open YEAR ROUND like the rest of SoCal.

Biggest public pool in the US, giant slides, beach & grass areas, & scenic mountains....where else can you get all that entertainment for your kids in the summer for $1????! Plus lake, park & kid’s museum next door👍🏼

When was the last time you were here?


Hansen Dam Aquatic Center is L.A.'s largest public pool, but it looks like a resort you'd see in Palm Springs, complete with cabana rentals and two impressive water slides.
