Closed for Winter
We have concluded our 2016 season. It has been a fun and wonderful summer. We thank everyone for coming down to play with us. We will re-open in mid-May of 2017. Watch this site starting in February for rental and lesson registration details.
Colman Pool is a Seattle landmark you won't want to miss this summer. It enjoys a stunning setting on the beach, the pool is heated saltwater, and if that's not enough, it features the Giant Tube Slide! And this year we'll put on some special events just for you. Please call the pool for details. Colman pool is a 50 meter, 8 lane Olympic size pool kept at 85 degrees.
Deep Water Swim Test
To ensure the safety of children and youth using our pools, swimmers younger than 18 years of age are required by Seattle Parks and Recreation to pass a swim test to enter the deep end. The test consists of swimming two widths of the pool. While crawl stroke is preferred, alternate methods of swimming can be acceptable if the child is swimming with the body in a prone position and is making good forward progress. For additional safety, the test may be more stringent if the pool is really crowded. Final determination is based on the judgment of the lifeguard on duty.
Alternately, the child can take the swim test using a personal flotation device (life jacket). Children who pass this modified test are allowed in the deep using a life jacket.
