Summer is here! And so is the Seattle Parks and Recreation wading pool/outdoor swim/spraypark season.
Here’s the schedule for Northeast Seattle (and nearby) locations:
Summer Beaches (swimming allowed when lifeguards are present on weekdays noon-7 PM and weekends 11 AM-7 PM):
- Northacres Park (12800 1st Ave. NE): May 24-September 1, daily, 11 AM-8 PM
Wading pools are filled when the day’s temperature has been forecast to be 70°F (21°C) or higher. If you want to double-check with Parks & Rec before loading up the picnic basket, there’s a Wading Pool Hotline you can call (updated daily by 9:30 AM): 206-684-7796.
The city-wide Wading Pool and Spraypark Schedule can be found here (small PDF; lots of Comic Sans).
