We are excited to announce that we will be doing some minor work to the facility that will include draining and cleaning the inside of the pool as well as a few other small repairs to the facility.

The pool will be closed on Nov. 12 and will reopen on Nov. 26.

We look forward to working hard to reopen with a visible difference to the work we plan to do during this time.

Thank you for your patience.

Upcoming Events:

• Pumpkin Plunge: 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 20 — Wear your costume to the pool for trick or treating and contest then change and pick out your very own pumpkin from the pool.

• Turkey Races: 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 10 — Come have fun with us playing games and food at the pool before Thanksgiving.

Remember we offer swim lessons year round. Tukwila Resident Scholarships are still available.

For more information visit, or call 206-267-2350.

Michelle Simpson is Director of Aquatic Operations at the Tukwila Pool.
