City of Lakewood
Mayfair Pool Aquatics Program to Open With Coronavirus Safety Precautions

The 2020 Lakewood summer aquatics program will open at Mayfair Pool on Monday, July 13, offering only programming which fits within guidelines provided by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health.

McCormick Pool will not be open, due to the increased costs for staffing and coronavirus safety precautions required to operate. Although many neighboring cities are not opening their pools at all this summer, the City of Lakewood has worked hard to provide as many swim activities as possible in the current environment, and hopes to return to normal operations at both pools next summer.

Programs offered at Mayfair Pool include:
Lap Swim for participants age 16 and older
Water Aerobics and Aqua Zumba classes
Swim Lessons for children ages 6 months and older

Please refer to the attached schedule and contact information, including Adaptive swim lessons for those with special needs, such as
hearing, visual, or developmental disabilities, age 3 and over.

All activities will require pre-registration. Registration opens July 4 for residents and July 7 for non-residents. 562-804-4256

All classes will maintain proper social distancing and capacity limits for the facility. Before entering the facility, participants must complete a health screening, including a temperature check, and will be required to wear a facemask to and from pool activities. The mask will not be required while in the water. There will be no open swim sessions due to physical distancing requirements.


In the HRC area, Alondra Park in Lawndale, Del Aire in Hawthorne, Victoria Park in Carson, and Don Knabe Park in Cerritos are among the locations.
