Begg Pool is not adequate for MB. Swim lessons are always full, free swim is rarely available, and compared to El Segundo, Hawthorne, and other neighboring cities, our pool program is really lacking. We have the space, right at Begg Pool or at Marine Park or elsewhere. This would be a wonderful resource for all MB residents, young and old, families and singles.

Please consider this before spending a penny on a skate park which will only benefit a very small group of residents and will probably be used more by non-residents.

Thank you for sharing your idea. In addition to Begg Pool, did you know that the City also has access and offers some aquatics programs at the pool at Mira Costa High School. More information is available through Parks & Recreation. In the meantime, I will share your comments with our Parks & Recreation Director as he looks at opportunities to enhance programs and services here in Manhattan Beach. .
