And here are 2 outdoor swimmingpools you should want to know near San Francisco...



The Community Pool in Brisbane. Warmth, sun and proximity with San Francisco. Keep in mind also it is a great place to throw kids birthday parties.


The Burlingame Aquatic Club. Same story... warmth, sun and proximity.



Up north, you will want to know the swimming pool of the Mill Valley Community Center. Indoor but with a slide. That's the icing on the cake,
