Lap Swimming

Program Objective
“The Plunge” operated by the City of Culver City’s Parks, Recreation, and Community Services Department was opened on August 31, 1949. The 40,000 square-foot facility includes a 50-meter x 25-yard Olympic size competition pool. Our heated competition pool may be set up as an eight-lane long course or a 19-lane short course venue. The facility also has a 25-yard by 52-foot diving well with one-meter and three-meter springboards. The Plunge is fully equipped to accommodate guests with special needs.

The Culver City Municipal Plunge offers both long course and short course lap swim opportunities for the exercise or competitive swimmer age 13 years of age or older. Hours are subject to change based upon availability.
