This is the pool built for the 1932 Olympics. You can see the Coliseum in the upper right.

In this aerial the swim stadium is at upper right.

It is now called the LA84 Foundation/John C. Argue Swim Stadium.
Some great photos of the location at this link:

The 1984 Olympics built a new swim stadium, with help from McDonald's, on the USC Campus, near Heritage Hall, I believe. For near thirty years it was called the McDonald's Swim Stadium until it was refurbished and now has a new name, the Uytengsu Aquatics Center. I can't find an aerial showing it's proximity to the Coliseum, but here's a photo of it.

Here's a temporary design for the next L.A. Olympics. It would cover USC's baseball field, Dedeaux Field, and would be a temporary facility.

Dedeaux Field

As you can see, the McDonald's Swim Stadium/Uytengsu Aquatics Center is on the center left. I believe it would be used for training. It looks like they
want to sell more tickets, hence a temporary stadium. Also, in the distance, the Los Angeles Coliseum is on the horizon.
