Support Local Journalism

Join the Scene Press Club community for as little as $5 per month.

Since its founding in 1970, the Cleveland Scene has been dedicated to providing fearless, high-quality local journalism, especially in times of crisis. As a small, independent news organization, we are facing an unprecedented challenge. We have launched the Scene Press Club to create a community around our readers and strongest supporters at a time that local media across the country has been struggling, and to help underwrite our work in light of the financial crisis catalyzed by the coronavirus pandemic.

At a time when our community needs fiercely independent reporting more than ever, we now depend on the support of our readers more than ever to help sustain our mission. Joining the Scene Press Club is one way you can help, and in return we will be providing a growing array of benefits and privileges.

We invite you to join our growing community of members to help sustain our mission of providing our readers free and full access online and in print. With your support, the Cleveland Scene can continue providing the best local reporting and enterprise coverage we can. And we look forward to the time when we all come out of this together.

Swim at a Public Pool



 For those of us not lucky enough to have a friend with a pool, the region’s public swimming offerings are the next best thing. There are, of course, Cleveland’s public pools, but with erratic openings based on temperatures and staffing, they are hardly worth counting on. Luckily, you can snag a guest day pass in many suburbs where the water is warm and the beach chairs bountiful: Dragga Pool in Mayfield Heights will run you $10 as a non-resident, Walter’s Grove in Parma will cost you just $6, Parma Heights’ primo pool awaits for $8, Foster and Becks Pools in Lakewood will let you in for $5.50, and Beachwood’s absolutely stunning outdoor aquatic center will refresh and entertain you for $10.
