La Mirada~Record attendance and revenues were seen at the Splash! La Mirada Regional Aquatic Center during the recently concluded summer season.

Summer attendance of over 189,000 drew in $1,200,000 in revenue. More than 6,300 Splash! season passes were sold.

"Attendance by families from the La Mirada area, particularly those with smaller children, was especially strong throughout the summer", according to La Mirada Community Services Director Lori Thompson. "Splash! has become a very popular destination for aquatic recreation, instruction, and competition".

The creative design of Splash! which combines instructional water and competitive pools with the family fun activities found in Buccaneer Bay water park area, is also proving to be a viable business model. While traditional pool complexes can be costly to operate and produce very little in the way of revenues, Splash! produces significant revenues to offset costs. The net investment in Splash! operations is within that of other recreational and cultural facilities serving La Mirada.

Splash! also offered hundreds of local youth a free program of swim lessons and activities during the summer.  The program included lessons, competitive activities and water play. The program was offered in cooperation with the County of Los Angeles and LA 84.

Althought the Buccanerr Bay water park ihas closed following the end of the summer season, Splash! will continue to offer a wide variety of swim lessons, exercise classes and open swim opportunities. For additional information on the Splash! schedule of activities, visit or call (562) 902-3191.

Time to Say Goodbye to an Old Reliable Friend E-mail

Mike and Lupita Lopez say goodbye to a car that has been with Mike-in La Mirada-since 1954.

La Mirada~ Mike Lopez of La Mirada summed it up in a few words, "Boy, I sure hate to see her go."

The "her' he is referring to is his beloved 1951 Studebaker Starlite, which has called Lopez' La Mirada garage, home, for 55 years.

Lopez says he literally, "bought the car from a little old lady in Pasadena. I then drove it to work and back for the next 20 years."

After purchasing the automobile in 1954, Lopez bought his then brand-new La Mirada home in 1956, and the car has been with him every step of the way, until now.

The car with its legendary "panoramic view" back windows, has been a  familiar sight in this La Mirada neighborhood for many years,especially when it was in its prime.

"She never once broke down on me during all of these years", Lopez said.

It has had a few paint jobs over the years, and remains in excellent condition; and it still runs.

However, the last 10 years or so, the car has mostly had garage duty, with only occasional outings.

Now, his daugter Marcy and her husband Richard of Corona, have purchased the car and it's time for it to move on to a new generation within the family.
