Save Farrelly Pool

Farrelly Pool is located adjacent to Roosevelt Elementary School and operated by the Parks & Recreation Department of the City of San Leandro. The large, outdoor pool is open each summer and enjoyed by thousands of San Leandrans. Programs offered include swim lessons for children. The staff and swim instructors at the pool are exceptional with the kids. The City Manager has proposed to the City Council that Farrelly Pool be closed this summer to save funds to address the city budget deficit. If approved by the City Council, the pool may be closed for years. We believe the city should focus on saving money in ways other than taking away valuable services for children. Farrelly pool has a long history in this community and has much more tangible value to the community than shows on the balance sheet. Having civic pools is part of what makes San Leandro a vibrant community. The budget for San Leandro is over $70 million. We call upon the City Council to find the monies necessary to keep Farrelly Pool open.
