Seattle summer arrives with a sunny opening for Lowery C. “Pop” Mounger Pool
Seattle Parks and Recreation opens Lowery C. “Pop” Mounger Pool, one of its two outdoor pools, this weekend on Saturday, May 12, 2012 at 1 p.m. for the summer season. Mounger Pool is located in Magnolia, at 2535 32nd Ave. W, and is open daily until September 9, 2012.
Mounger Pool is two pools in one place. The “big pool” has a 50-foot corkscrew slide and the warmer, shallower “little pool” is great for relaxing and for teaching little ones. Throughout the summer, Parks will host Friday Family Fun nights from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. We will feature themed events such as Rock and Roll Party, Outrageous Animal Safari, Art on Deck, and Pirate Pool Party.
For more information contact the pool at 206-684-4708 or “like” Lowery C. “Pop” Mounger Pool on Facebook.
Seattle Parks’ other outdoor pool is Colman Pool, located in West Seattle. This pool is a heated saltwater pool that features a giant tube slide. The pool opens on Saturday June 30, 2012. Parks is currently working on the pool to provide much needed repairs that will extend the life expectancy of this great facility. We are upgrading the pool deck, pool gutters, and upper section of the pool shell and will install a new plaster lining. Colman pool is located at 8603 Fauntleroy Way SW for more information please contact 206-684-7494.
