About

We are one of eight indoor pools operated by Seattle Parks and Recreation. Located on Rainier Avenue S, we offer a wide array of aquatics programs for all ages. Our lessons offerings include tot lessons (6 months to 4 years of age), kinder lessons, youth lessons, youth competitive stroke lessons, adult and senior adult lessons, and private lessons. Exercise classes include aqua jogging, hydro-fit exercise, and water exercise. We also offer family swim, public swim, and lap swim times.

Slide Swim Test and Rules

Children under 48" (4ft in height) must pass a swim test in order to use the slide.  Lifejackets cannot be worn on the slide.  Two people cannot go down the slide together (this includes a parent and child).  Children cannot be caught by parents at the bottom of the slide.

An adult must accompany children who do not meet age and height requirements. One adult may supervise only two children at a time.  Adults must remain within arm's reach of supervised children.

Children under 48" (4ft in height) OR younger than six years of age must be accompanied in the water by a paying adult. Child must fulfill both height and age requirements to be able to swim without an adult.

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.
