COUNTDOWN: 3 days until Colman Pool reopens

Thanks to Brian Hawksford for the photo. That’s a sneak peek through a gate at Colman Pool on the Lincoln Park shore as its reopening approaches – this Saturday at noon. If you’re new, Colman Pool is West Seattle’s only city-owned outdoor pool, and its sole saltwater pool – water is pumped in from Puget Sound, which is steps away. After staying closed last summer, it’s reopening this Saturday, June 19th, and will be open daily through September 6th. The schedule will be the same every day – one-hour public sessions with part of the pool open for lap swimming, part for family swim, with sessions starting at noon, 1:30 pm, 3 pm, 4:30 pm, and 6 pm – more info here.

    Exciting about Colman opening, great childhood memories there and then with my children.  Isn’t there an outdoor pool in Magnolia? Not saltwater but I think part of the parks department, Mounger?

      Yes, but as noted above, this is *West* Seattle’s only city-owned outdoor pool.

        In the tech mecca Seattle, how is it possible that parks can’t have online sign up /reservation for Colman’s limited capacity swim? Due to the fact that the pool is a long way to hike . Pools that have been open for awhile have online sign up working well.

    I wish they’d open time slots online instead of having to wait in line. With little kids, it’s pretty risky to park and walk all the way in to find out they’re sold out. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
