Garfield Square Park's pool closed for winter

There’s good news and there’s bad news for community pool swimmers in the Mission district.

The bad news: Garfield Square Park is closing its pool for renovations during the next couple months.

The good news: The Recreation and Park Department is keeping the pool at the Mission Playground open for the winter, which usually doesn't happen.

It’s about a 10-block trek from Garfield at 25th and Harrison Street to the Mission pool at 19th and Linda streets, but it’s only about three blocks from the 16th and Mission BART station.
