There is never a perfect time to close Los Baños pool, and staff acknowledges the disruption to your workout schedule; however, this closure provides the opportunity to complete an extensive list of projects to improve and maintain Los Baños del Mar Pool for the benefit of all users.
While swimming, you have undoubtedly noticed the expansion line mastic deteriorating, and an above average amount of sand in the pool, both of which will be addressed by draining the pool to remove and replace the mastic, replacing pump valves, and repairing one of the three pool filters. While the pool is empty, staff will also replace lighting as needed.
During the closure, both locker rooms will undergo major repairs, which include the replacement of all shower heads and handles, and improving the heating and circulation to create a more pleasant environment, while reducing the accumulation of moisture which can contribute to mold. The locker rooms will also be renovated to create one-private changing room stall and shower space in each locker room to address privacy concerns for all individuals for compliance with state and federal law prohibiting discrimination on the basis of gender identity.

Other facility enhancements include new pool water, deck tile and cement repair, paint touch-up, industrial locker room cleanings, and replacement of the weight room carpet with new rubberized flooring as a result of a funding partnership between the Friends of Los Baños del Mar and Santa Barbara Swim Club
Monthly passes will be pro-rated for the month of December. There will be no discount for 10 visit memberships and the 18 month expiration is still in effect. If you rent a locker, please make sure to clear out anything that you might need during the closure because you will not have access to the facility during the closure.
We thank you for your patience.
