If you can't stand the heat, come Saturday you'll have 48 more options for taking a cooling dip. The City of Los Angeles' seasonal swimming pools will be open for the summer starting June 23.

The seasonal--outdoor--pools have morning and afternoon public swim sessions. Additionally, there are 16 year-round pools that offer afternoon and evening swim sessions to the general public; some also have lap swim sessions during the day.

The City's Parks & Rec aquatics division has this pricing info:

Currently, the City’s pools offer: Free swimming for Youth 17 and under, seniors and Disabled. Lap passes are available for various programs. Adults showing a Los Angeles City library card get a discount admission price of $2.00 per entry rather than the regular admission of $2.50.

The seasonal pools are generally open from: 11:00am - 6pm Weekdays and 1:00pm - 5:00pm Weekends.

If you want to take a virtual dive, however, until the public pools open up, take a swim down memory lane with these colorful vintage postcards of old hotel pools.
