Wading Pools and Sprayparks
Wading Pool Hotline: (206) 684-7796 - updated daily
We will plan to open the wading pools on sunny days when the temperature is forecast to be 70 degrees or above. On most days we will fill them half full, which is a 50% water savings ..but on the busiest days they will be filled to the top!
CLOSED for 2013 Season
Open daily from 11 a.m. - 8 p.m., unless thunder and lighting is present.
SAVE WATER USE THE WADING POOLS AND SPRAYPARKS!
As an element of the City’s water conservation effort, we’re encouraging people to use public wading pools and sprayparks rather than fill their home “kiddy pools” or run backyard sprinklers. In accordance with state law, we fill, chlorinate, supervise, and empty each wading pool every day, which requires a substantial amount of water. With a bit of analysis, we learned that filling home wading pools uses more water than a public community wading pool. For example, if 50 families used the East Queen Anne wading pool at 160 Howe St., rather than filling their home wading pools, the water saved would equal that needed to fill the public wading pool, which would serve a lot more than 50 kids!
