Tukwila Pool, aquatic manager

As the temperature starts to drop outside, we here at the Tukwila Pool want to remind everyone that swimming doesn’t have to stop when summer is over. We keep our pool temperature at 84 degrees so there is no excuse not to come in and enjoy the warm water even if it’s rainy and 40 degrees outside.

There are many programs to take advantage of this fall and winter. We have water aerobics classes, swimming lessons for both children and adults, lap swim, family swim and open swim. We also have a swim team that calls Tukwila Pool home.

So if you haven’t stopped by or it has been awhile since your last visit, we encourage you to come in and check out what we have to offer. Our friendly staff will gladly answer any questions you have.

Our Third Saturday event for November is the Turkey Races 1-3 p.m. Nov. 21 at the pool. There will be a turkey rally, turkey cannonball, turkey toss and turkey slide.

Registration for our next session of Swimming Lessons start Nov. 18, so don’t miss out! For a full schedule of the programs we offer please come in and pick up one of our brochures or you can visit us on line at www.tukwilapool.org.

Additionally, if there is an activity you would like to see offered at Tukwila Pool we want to hear about it! Please call Dave Perkins at 206-267-2350 or email dperkins@tukwilapool.org.

Thank you for taking the time to read this message and hope to see you all in the water soon!

Dave Perkins is the aquatic manager for the Tukwila Pool, 4414 S. 144th St., Tukwila. He can be reached at dperkins@tukwilapool.org
