The City of San Diego will close the beach at Children’s Pool beginning at daybreak on Saturday, Dec. 15. Since 2014, the City has closed the beach and surrounding area from Dec. 15 to May 15 during harbor seal pupping season.
The existing rope line, which serves as a guide and reminder for the public to keep a safe distance from any seals that may be present, will also be removed since the entire beach will be closed to the public. City park rangers and lifeguards will continue to monitor Children’s Pool during the beach closure to keep the public and wildlife safe.
