Tukwila Pool offers special events each month

Did you know that the Tukwila Pool offers fun-filled community events each month, year round? We sure do. Every third Saturday of the month from 1-3 p.m., we hold a themed event packed with games, treats and food.

The cost is just $3 per swimmer. We require that all children 6 years and under have at least one adult in the water with them.

On Saturday, Oct. 21 we will have our annual Pumpkin Plunge.

This event includes a costume contest, games, prizes, food and face painting, and you get to retrieve your own pumpkin from the pool. For this event, we encourage you to pre-register so we know how many pumpkins we need to throw in the pool.

Nov. 18 we will host our Turkey Races, and Dec. 16 is our Winter Fiesta.

Be sure to check out our website, tukwilapool.org, for the list of all of our events.

And remember, we have something for all ages and swimming abilities at the Tukwila Pool.

Visit our website for more information or call 206-267-2350.

Michelle Simpson is the aquatics manager for the Tukwila Pool. She can be reached at 206-267-2350, ext. 103, or msimpson@tukwilapool.org.
