Longing for the warm breezes and festive fun of a luau on a Hawaiian island? We’ve got the next best thing without a long plane ride.

The Tukwila Pool’s annual luau is from 1 to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 21, and we’re pulling out all the stops, including surf boards and boogie boards, to make you forget the chill outside.

Many people don’t know that the Tukwila Pool is open to the public, and we offer a wide range of programs to suit everyone’s interests.

So, help get the word out about your favorite pool and invite a friend to join you for Aquarobics. Our water aerobics classes started again on Jan. 10, and we now offer a the choice of a shallow water class on Tuesday nights and a deep water class on Thursday nights.

Have you even heard of “No School, Come to the Pool”? We offer a special $2 rate for open swims from 1 to 3 p.m. on those days when Tukwila School District is out or has an early release Wednesday. Upcoming dates include Jan. 27 and Feb. 1, 20 and 21.

As you look ahead to spring and summer, get everyone ready to be safe and have a great time by signing up for swim lessons. Our lessons are an easy and inexpensive way to feel confident that you and your loved ones are safe playing in and around Washington’s many bodies of water.

For more information on swim lessons and how to register, go to and choose swim lessons from our main menu.

Swim lesson scholarships for Tukwila residents have been fully funded for 2017.

Jennafer Price Cargill is executive director of the Tukwila Pool Metropolitan Park District.
