Brrrr!!! It may be cold outside, but it’s a balmy 84 degrees year-round at the Tukwila Pool. Come inside and enjoy the warm water as you let all the hustle and bustle of holiday stress melt away.

Wondering how to make the most of the kids’ winter break? We’re offering open swims, with the diving board and big slide, almost every day from 1-3 p.m. through Jan. 1.

We’re also hosting a special one-week intensive swim lesson session for youth Monday, Dec. 26, through Friday, Dec. 30. Five classes in a week is a great way to advance skills by building knowledge daily. Registration opened Dec. 14. Call 206-267-2350 or go to tukwilapool.org and click on swim lessons for more information and to register.

The pool will close at 1 p.m. on Dec. 24 and Dec. 31 which means no open swim on those days. We’ll also be closed all day on Dec. 25 so that our staff can enjoy a well-deserved break with their families. But we’ll be open bright and early Jan. 1 and hope to see you here making good on New Year’s resolutions.

Speaking of resolutions, water exercise is the best way to get back into working out because it’s almost zero-impact on the joints. We’ve got morning and evening classes, both high- and low-intensity. Get your blood pumping and come check them out. Visit tukwilapool.org for the full schedule.

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