OAKLAND SWIMMING POOL ROUNDUP DAY 1: DeFremery and McClymond Pools

DeFremery Pool next to the Town Skatepark on 18th Street in West Oakland is CLOSED (for the summer), so I don't even need to get into it. If you go there, you will find a sign directing you to another swimming pool (McClymond High School Pool @ 2607 Myrtle). Like a chump, I road my bike over to McClymond (I really wanted to go swimming!) and went around the block twice, only catching a couple funny looks--no sign of the pool. Google maps shows it's tucked away in the middle of the campus, so if you go to swim there, take your bolt cutters. Oakland Aquatics website still says DeFremery is open so no help there. Day 1 of the swimming pool roundup was a fail, but at least I had a nice ride around the hood. 

DAY 1 RUNDOWN
STOP 1: DeFremery Pool @ 1269 18th St., Oakland (CLOSED)


STOP 2: McClymond's Pool @ 2607 Myrtle St., Oakland (MYSTERIOUS)
