Additional comments regarding overall quality of parks and facilities:
I’m really disappointed with the quality and condition of our parks and facilities. I have 3 children ages 2 through 6 and we want to use our city’s facilities as much as possible. Considering how expensive our area is, this should not be the case.

- Begg pool: the parking, the lockers are awful! They are so old and so difficult to navigate. The showers in the locker look worse than prison showers. The pool could be upgraded too to make it bigger or build a new pool. Our kids want swimming lessons!! They fill up so fast. Why should I have to pay for indoor pools or go to other beach cities? Why can’t we have a bigger and better pool?

Polliwog Park: this is the closest park to my house. It makes me sad for my kids. The upper structure needs more shade. And you should get rid of the tire foams. Those are dirty and disgusting. Why can’t we have foam mats that I see at other parks? And the lower playground must be a relic from the 50s! The fence around the structure for smaller children is falling apart. Kids can fit through gaps in the fences. The bridge has been roped off for at least a year with no sign of repairs. Everything is worn out and horrible.

8th street parkette: this is the only park servicing East Manhattan Beach south of Manhattan Beach Blvd. while it is large it is mostly just grass. Why can’t you put another play structure for the kids or a basketball court? It’s mostly just a dead space and kids rarely use it. For older kids above age 5-6 they don’t even have swings! It’s just 2 baby swings. But kids that are 5-8 also like swinging and need regular seats. There is so much room there to add swings and an additional play structure or basketball court

Please improve the Begg pool and create an aquatics center. I can’t believe that a performing arts center is even being considered. The redondo beach one is excellent and services our area and needs. Why would we need another one so close by???? Please use our citizens resources and taxpayer dollars wisely!! Begg pool is a travesty for such a “wealthy” neighborhood. Have you seen The Plunge at El Segundo?? Even Hawthorne’s pool is light years beyond ours. From the horrible parking access to the disgusting lockers to the severely limited lack of classes for our kids, our city’s lack of a state-of-the-art swimming facility is shameful. We are supposed to be the premier beach city, valuing the outdoors and aquatic activities and yet our community pool is beyond pathetic. Please think this through. There are so many young families that would benefit from a great aquatic center for years to come.

Additional comments regarding overall quality of parks and facilities:
The "Red House" in Polliwog is in desperate need of reorganizing and cleaning. I went there the other day, and there was a transient person who set up camp on the ramp into the house. It's understandable that they'd think no one would kick them out because no one cleans it and volunteers are only there on the weekend.

I'm anxious for the city to fulfill its promise last November to the citizens to do more to promote the history of Manhattan Beach, which includes cleaning up the historical cottage/red house in Polliwog and present its inventory to the community. It's outrageous that so little has been done in the past year. Regarding this survey, I honestly can't believe that one of the above options is "put sand volleyball courts in the park". What in the world?! We have an entire beach loaded with sand volleyball courts! Let's clean up and maintain the parks we do have, keep things up-to-date, appealing, and usable.
