2021 Fall Update

The 2021 fall schedule begins Tuesday September 8, when Medgar Evers will be open Monday through Saturday. (No longer open on Sundays.) Operating Hours will be 11am-7:30pm; see schedule for program offerings. Swim lessons are scheduled to begin in November. More details to come!


Medgar Evers Pool is closed tomorrow (Monday, 1/10) because of staffing shortages related to COVID-19. The pool, staff, and public areas will be deep cleaned before we reopen. Check here for updates on reopening.

We are one of eight indoor pools operated by Seattle Parks and Recreation. We're located on 23rd Ave, next to Garfield Community Center. In non-pandemic times, we offer a wide array of programs for all ages. Our 25 yard, 6 lane pool is kept at an 85 degree temperature.
