Children's Pool Controversy In La Jolla (Michelle Silverman) Share

September 25, 2019

The Children's Pool in La Jolla has stirred up lots of controversy indecent years. It was created by Ellen Browning Scripps in 1931. She commissioned the construction of a seawall to create a safe, calm place for children to swim on the 800 block of Coast Boulevard South. Then in the 1990's the seals & sea lions moved into The Children's Pool. After receiving concerns that people were bothering the seals and causing some mothers to abandon their pups the San Diego City Council voted in 2014 to shutter Children’s Pool each Dec. 15 to May 15, which is pupping season. For the rest of the year, there’s a thin rope separating the seals from areas where visitors can move around on the beach. What do you think this area should be? Share Your opinion in the comments below on what you think the Children's Pool in La Jolla should be reserved for.
