We’ve had a few runs of sunny days this spring to give us a foretaste of summer 2018. And sunny days remind folks that swimming is among the most popular of summer recreations.
At Tukwila Pool we hold special events on the third Saturday of every month.
Saturday, May 19 is ‘Pirates in the Pool’ — bring your lads and lasses to Ar-r-rh piratical playtime. There’ll be treasure to plunder, for sure! Will you Walk the Plank to Davy Jones’ locker?
Saturday, June 16 is Dive On In! — featuring giant beach balls, inner tubes and lots of diving and splashing about. The following day, June 17th, dads are welcome to swim free in honor of Father’s Day.
A perennial favorite, the Cardboard Boat Races, give you a chance to build your own boat then see how she floats. This is scheduled for Saturday, July 21. Can you build a shipshape craft with duct tape, scissors & cardboard? Come & give it a try.
Come Saturday, August 18 to be entertained with our Circus at the Pool. Swim through the underwater rings, jump through the flaming ring — there will be games & prizes galore.
Monday, June 25 marks the start of our summer schedule — featuring open swim from 1-4 p.m. Monday through Friday (except Thursdays, when it runs one hour 3-4 p.m.), and on weekends 1-3 p.m. The whole pool, shallow and deep end is open, including the diving board and the thrill of the water slide. Keep in mind that third Saturday, though, when open swim is replaced with our special events (listed above).
We hope you have a great summer and that you spend at least part of it here with us at the pool!
