The standard pool admission is $5 per person. There is no extra charge for the live music. The pool is located on the campus of Roosevelt Elementary School at 864 Dutton Avenue, San Leandro.

Earlier this year, the city proposed to close Farrelly Pool for the summer due to the budget crisis. As reported in the Daily Review:
Adults and children signed petitions, e-mailed council members and appeared at council meetings in April and May to protest the Farrelly closure plan. Council members asked that — somehow — the pool open this year. Parent Brian Murrell told council members on May 18 that Farrelly was being "singled out," since the Boys & Girls Club pool doesn't have a shallow end. Traveling from the Farrelly pool in northeast San Leandro to the crowded aquatic center in west San Leandro is a 20-minute drive full of "congestion and pollution," he said.

Please spread the word and come to Farrelly this summer - to have a great time and keep this valuable community resource open for years to come.
