CPA 3 Chris Zirkle

Chris Zirkle with the San Diego Park and Recreation Department’s Open Space Division said seal haul-out sites in California are commonly designated as Environmentally Sensitive Habitat Areas to protect the marine mammals. The Children’s Pool is considered a seal rookery (or birthing place), and even more sensitive, he said.

    La Jolla Shores is dangerous swimming for the disabled. You may be able to get to the water in a wheelchair, but entering the water and swimming through the waves, and the surge and the surfers and the kayaks is especially dangerous if you do no have the use of your legs. There IS NO other ocean swimmming pool in La Jolla . Children’s Pool was built for the Children and the disabled. ” those handicapped in life’s game( Ellen Browning Scripps). There is no other safe ocean entry except the Children’s Pool for the disabled swimmer. To install a ADA shower and not allow them to get to the beach to need a shower is a cruel joke. The City of San Diego,it appears not not respect the rights of the Disabled. If the City did care about the disabled then the Children’s Pool would not be overrun with a mammal that is deficating all over and creating a human health hazard, and the Pool built especially for the Disabled would be in good shape, sand dredged out , sluices open and clean, and the seals would be happy in a clean environment at their Seal Rock and Shell Beach,and the entire reef behind the wall and S. Casa Beach and all the other beaches. Try swimming at La JOlla Shores with out the use of your legs. Then try it at Children’s Pool. You will find it can be done behind the safety of the breakwater wall built for this purpose. It was not built to pen in seals. Why the City of San Diego and Friends of the Seals intend to prevent the disabled from swimming at their own beach is really disgraceful for our City. When Children’s Pool could be the destination for disabled people from all over the
    World, and not just a stop off point to look at seals in an unhealthy environment for them.
