FOLLOWUP: Southwest Pool closure could last beyond Sunday

In our windstorm-followup report earlier today, we included tweeted word from Seattle Parks that Southwest Pool is closed because of a boiler problem related to the storm. Tonight, Erin Bruce from pool management sent word that the closure could last longer than the rest of the weekend:

Southwest Pool will be closed for the rest of the weekend and possibly into early next week.

Due to damage from Friday night’s windstorm, we have no domestic hot water, and cannot re-open until the problem is fixed.

We have no estimate for the repair timeline, but Parks staff are working as fast as they can to get the pool up and running as quickly as possible.

Southwest Pool is the city’s only year-round aquatic facility in West Seattle. Evergreen Pool in nearby White Center is also closed right now, for resurfacing work that’s scheduled to continue until early January.

    I so wish they would get a good pool in west seattle. We have been in both the Y pool and southwest and they are both too cold even when they do have hot water. We travel to both safe n sound and Rainier beach.

      You might want to try the Evergreen Pool at 606 SW 116th St, next to Evergreen High School.  They are currently scheduled to re-open on January 2nd.  It is a very nice facility, as long as you don’t need a diving board.  (Their sloped wood beam roof is too low for diving boards.)   It is 9 lanes wide, so I rarely have to share a lane.

Sorry, comment time is over.
