City Wide Pools

Updated: November 5, 2019

Fall 2019

As a project management efficiency, Seattle Parks and Recreation, Planning and Development Division (PDD) consolidated needed citywide pool repairs into one bid package. Seattle Parks and Recreation awarded the construction contract to Biwell Construction, Inc. in early October 2018.

The City Wide Pools project is addressing needed structural improvements to seven existing pools:

  • Queen Anne - Queen Anne Pool completed structural repairs and is open. 
  • Medger Evers - Refurbish existing pool bulkhead. Selective pool deck slab demolition and replacement. Selective pool deck drains demolition and replacement. Install new plaster liner. Repair SBS membrane roof at stair tower/mechanical room roof. 

    Medger Evers Pool Update - The pool is currently closed for the repairs. Due to additional delamination and unforeseen repairs, the Medgar Evers Pool grand reopening has been pushed back until November 18, 2019.
    Our preliminary investigation of the elevated pool deck slab found rusting rebar, which had caused concrete beneath the slab to delaminate and spall. We planned to repair that delamination and spalling. It was only when we opened up surfaces and began removing concrete that we could verify the amount of rusted rebar and concrete delamination. That additional work has required additional time to complete.
  • Meadowbrook - Selective pool deck slab demolition and replacement. Selective pool deck drains demolition and replacement. Selective repair of pool edge apron. Replacement of Natatorium air handling unit and associated duct work at Meadowbrook Pool is complete.
  • Southwest - Replacement of the pool liner is complete and the pool reopened June 24, 2019.  
  • Madison - Facility is now closed for renovation. Refurbish existing pool bulkhead. Demolish and replace roof, install insulation and provide seismic structural upgrades.  Demolition and repair of stucco walls, siding, and clerestory windows. Demolish and replace lighting fixtures.
    Mid-December Opening: Madison Pool's maintenance closure has been extended until Mid-December due to additional items needing to be repaired. Swimming lessons will be cancelled for Fall Quarter and credits will be issued to accounts. We are sorry for the inconvenience this causes to the community and look forward to reopening as soon as the work can be completed.
  • Ballard - Demolish and replace existing concrete pool deck, pool deck drains, pool & spa plaster liner and replace existing pool filter system.

Planned Closure Dates:

  • Queen Anne Pool: Open
  • Medgar Evers Pool: January 2 - November 18, 2019
  • Meadowbrook Pool: September 16 - September 30, 2019 (Pool is open)
  • Mounger Pool: March 18 - April 14, 2019 (Pool opened for summer season)
  • Southwest Pool: April 27 - June 24, 2019 (Pool is open)
  • Helene Madison Pool: May 20 - Mid-December 2019
