Recreational Swim and Diving

Please stay healthy and safe!

Out of an abundance of caution Recreational Swimming and Family Swim has been suspended until further notice. As new COVID-19 cases remain at alarming levels and the number of people hospitalized continue to increase, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health issued a new temporary order effective November 30, 2020. The City of Culver City has issued a Public Order that mirrors the latest County Order.

In this new Order the Los Angeles County Public Health Department orders the following for Pools: “Pools that serve more than one household may open only for regulated lap swimming with one person per lane.”  To remain compliant with the new order the Plunge will be open for Lap Swim Only from November 30, 2020 through December 20, 2020.

The City’s goal is always to make the Plunge as safe as possible and provide a welcoming environment for the hundreds of patrons we serve each day. The City reserves the right to close the pool without advanced notice for special events, filming and in the case of emergencies.
