Pool Closure 10/16 - 11/12

10/16 - 11/12 - Evans Pools will be closed for maintenance and repair October 16 - November 12. These repairs include a crucial roof repair and replacement of the pool pump which will lengthen the life of this facility.

These repairs are part of our larger Green Lake Community Center and Evans Pool Stabilization project. SPR is still aware that a longer-term plan for the recreation needs of Green Lake and surrounding neighborhoods will need to be addressed as this facility continues to age. Thanks to our incredible SPR staff closures for these repairs will be minimal. Closure Schedule to Accommodate work:

  • Evans Pool Closure:  October 16 - November 12
  • Green Lake CC Closure:  October 30 - November 5
  • Green Lake Gym Closure:  October 16 -November 5

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.


Every Friday from 6:45-8:10pm Evans Pools hosts SKWIM! SKWIM is the "original water-disk sport" gaining popularity worldwide. Played in both shallow and deep water, SKWIM progresses with your ability, from an engaging learn-to-swim game to possibly the most electric, athletic, and entertaining water-sport of all time.

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.

Hygiene Services
