We are one of eight indoor pools operated by Seattle Parks and Recreation. Located in on the shores of Green Lake, we offer a wide array of aquatics programs for all ages. We have tot lessons (6 months to 4 years of age), kinder lessons, youth lessons, youth competitive stroke lessons, adult and senior adult lessons, and personal lessons. Our many exercise programs include shallow water aerobics, deep water aerobics, "Swimstrong" workouts. We also offer family swim, public swim, and lap swim times. Our pool is maintained at 85 degrees.
Lap Swim Change Notice
Revised Early Morning Lap Swim Schedule. Effective Monday, November 14th
As you know, starting this 2016-2017 school year, Seattle Public Schools has made school start and end times later. This change has a direct impact on daily school class schedules and means that high school swim teams had to shift to morning practice times during the competitive swim season. During that period, early morning lap swims shifted to earlier times at most pools. This schedule reflects a compromise that allows pool time for both high school swim teams and early morning lap swimmers.
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.
We have shower and restroom facilities available for Seattle Public School students and residents in need. Please see http://www.seattle.gov/homelessness for more information, times, and locations.
