During the dog days of summer, Los Angeles city pools will open their doors to people who might not otherwise be able to afford a swim. Throughout the month of August, children and adults may swim free for a few hours at one of 14 participating city pools. The dates and hours of the special Fun Days vary from pool to pool. One pool will participate each day, enabling those who miss the event at one facility to attend another in the area soon afterward, officials said.
