Tukwila Pool manager

If you haven’t visited the Tukwila Pool before, this fall is a great time to make your first visit. We have many programs available for the entire family, including lap swim and family swim every day. Our slide and diving board are available for use on the weekends during open swim. We also offer affordable swimming lessons on weekday evenings and Saturday mornings. Our next registration for lessons will be Wednesday, Nov. 23. In addition, over winter break in December we will offer a special one-week lesson package. Classes will start on Dec. 26.

If you are looking for something fun to do, we have a special event planned on the third Saturday of every month. Mark your calendars for these don’t-miss events coming up. From 1-3 p.m. Nov. 19 we will be having our Turkey Races, and from 1-3 p.m. Dec. 17 is our Winter Fiesta. We will have fun games and snacks for the entire family.

The Tukwila Pool has hired Rob Davis Jr. as our new assistant manager. He brings more than eight years of aquatic experience to the Tukwila Pool. We are very excited to bring him on board to help us as we move into the future.

For more information on all of our programming at the pool, visit or give us a call at 206-267-2350. Our staff is happy to answer any questions you may have.
