The Magnuson Park wading pool is closed for for the rest of the season due to fire damage. Read more on our Parkways Blog.

Come and spend the day at the second largest park in Seattle. Experience the beautiful view from the wading pool, which looks out over Lake Washington.
Picnic shelters and tables, restroom facilities, Kite Hill, and a swimming beach are available nearby. And young ones shouldn't miss the Junior League of Seattle Playground, approximately 1/2 mile west of here.

To get to the wading pool, enter the park at N.E. 65th Street off of Sand Point Way N.E. Drive straight ahead (east) to the lake, then left (north) along the shoreline. Park at the foot of Kite Hill, near the Fin Art Project.

    We will plan to open the wading pools on sunny days when the temperature is forecast to be 70 degrees or higher. On most days we will fill them half full, which is a 50% water savings..but on the busiest days they will be filled to the top!

    Parks uses the average of temperature forecasts from eight weather websites to determine whether to close. When that average temperature is forecast to be below 70 degrees, Parks makes the decision not to open the wading pools or sprayparks.

    Our wading pool hotline, (206) 684-7796, is updated every morning by 9:30 a.m. If the weather looks iffy, its the best way to find out if the wading pools and sprayparks are open for the day or not.
