Getting down to the quieter weeks of summer – but not *entirely* quiet:

ONE WADING POOL, ONE SPRAYPARK: Most city wading pools’ seasons ended over the past few days, but Lincoln Park‘s wading pool remains open daily (weather permitting), 11 am-8 pm, through Labor Day – so that’s two more weeks. Same for Highland Park Spraypark, 11 am-8 pm through Labor Day. Addresses and other info here.

AFTERNOON BOOK GROUP: 2 pm at Southwest Branch Library; this month’s book is “Snow Flower and the Secret Fan” by Lisa See. No registration or previous participation required – just show up. (35th/Henderson)

WHAT MAKES A BOAT FLOAT? Kids 4-8 will find out tonight at 6 pm at High Point Branch Library. Free but registration is required – info and the phone number, all here.

P.S. for politics-watchers:

NO CITY COUNCIL MEETINGS FOR TWO WEEKS: If you keep watch on what the council and its committees are up to, you get a two-week break starting today – it’s the annual hiatus.


  1. when is Labor Day?

  2. Why would wading pool “season” end so soon? School’s still out, weather is hot! Maybe because of the ubiquitous yellowjackets?

  3. Ever since budget cuts at Parks years ago. I don’t know that there’s ever been a motion to restore the service. Back in 2008, there was an outcry over a lack of Sunday access in eastern West Seattle … now only Lincoln Park is open seven days a week (well, and the Highland Park Spraypark).
