Repairs to Seawall
City of San Diego contracted for repairs to the Children’s Pool breakwater. These repairs included replacing the handrail, improving lifeguard facilities and repairing the breakwater itself.
There is no evidence of any concern about or discussion of seals in the Children’s Pool area until July, 1992. A representative of Sea World, Jim Antrim, discussed with Barbara Bamburger, a representative of “Friends of the Seals,” the creation of a seal reserve in the vicinity of “the rock off Shell Beach (in front of 939 Coast Blvd)” as it was the “focal point of harbor seal activity concentrated between the months of January and, May.”
