Ken Kramer's About San Diego

Bud Kearns Memorial Pool

Clip: Season 2 | 1m 35s

This Balboa Park public swimming pool has a remarkable history dating back to its particularly noteworthy opening day! It was January and cold, but San Diegans came in droves to the new pool. Envisioned by William Kearns, the Recreation Superintendant, the clay-tile roof, decorative wrought iron, and ornamental tiles take you back to the 1930s. But, the enjoyment and community here are timeless.
