La Jolla Children's Pool Lifeguard Station

Project Overview

The scope of work for this project consists of the demolition of the existing Children’s Pool Lifeguard Station located at 850 Coast Blvd. La Jolla, CA 92037 and construction of a new, three-story lifeguard station. The new lifeguard station is partially subterranean and is generally located in the same location as the existing facility.

The existing plaza will be reconfigured to include hardscape and landscape elements, a ramp for emergency vehicles and pedestrians to the Lower Level, accessible restrooms and showers, enhanced seating and viewing space, drinking fountains, adapted landscaping, and water efficient irrigation.

Construction Schedule
