Medgar Evers Pool Schedule

Medgar Evers Pool is excited to announce the return of swim lessons! Lessons are scheduled to resume Monday, November 1. Registration begins Tuesday, October 19 at 12pm. Lessons will NOT BE THE SAME as pre-Covid-19. All lesson instructors will be ON DECK. Due to Covid-19 safety protocols, instructors will NOT BE IN THE WATER. Exceptions may be made to make a "rescue" or quick demonstration. Please look at the Lesson Brochure for new class titles and descriptions.

All sessions will be available for in person drop-in admission only, on a first come, first served basis. Admission for all swims will be sold 15 mins prior to each swim. Please keep in mind that there is a maximum capacity and swims may sell out. Please maintain 6' between your family and others while waiting in line.  

For Public Swims: All children under 6 years of age and less than 4 feet tall must be accompanied by an adult in the water, within arm's reach.  

Please do not come to the pool if you have COVID symptoms, have recently tested positive or have recently been exposed. Maintain 6' between your family and others while in the facility. Masks must be worn when not swimming. Customers will self-screen; please do not come to the pool if experiencing symptoms of illness.

We encourage everyone who plans to swim regularly to update their Seattle Parks account and purchase a 10-swim pass online prior to the start of the season. This will simplify your ticket purchase and save you money! If you have ever purchased a swim pass, signed up for lessons or rented the pool, you already have an account. You can log-in with your email here. If you do not have a password, enter your email, and click "forgot password."  PLEASE NOTE: We are NOT offering the 30 Day Passes as in past seasons.  We will resume 30 Day Pass usage when operations return to normal in the future.    

Fall Schedule through 1/3/22 

Schedule Change: Beginning November 15,  pool hours are reduced to 11am-2:30pm Monday through Thursday, due to the High School Boys Swim Team season. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Program Descriptions

Lap Swim is a continuous lap swim for swimmers of all ages; we divide the lanes according to speed levels.  

Adult and Senior Swim Adult and Senior Swim is time set aside for recreational swimming for adults 18 or older. We set aside one part of the pool for lap swimming and leave the rest of the pool available for less structured swimming or water fitness activities.

Deep & Shallow Water Fitness is a combined deep & shallow-water fitness class using resistance equipment that not only burns calories, but strengthens muscles while shaping and toning the entire body. This 45-minute class is great for hips, thighs, arms, and abdominals.  

Shallow Water Fitness Set to energizing music, this is a heart-pounding, muscle toning workout that is easy on your joints but still has all the benefits of a total body, aerobic workout. Participants can work at their own pace. Active class time is 45 minutes.

Recreation Swim Recreational swims are for families and children to come and play in the water. Children under 4 feet tall and/or under 6 years old will be required to have a parent stay within arm's reach of them at all times in the pool.  Only 2 younger children per parent during the swim.  A parent may bring a group of older children up to ten per adult making sure they are supervising the group.  This swim time may be shared with another program going on at the same time.  Pool toys and equipment may be used at the lifeguard's discretion. Swim tests required to enter deep end for youth under 18 and life jackets available upon request.
