Please join us for a celebration of Colman Pool’s 75th Anniversary on Monday, July 4th. Doors open at 10 am.

Colman Pool, West Seattle’s outdoor pool and Seattle’s only heated saltwater pool, celebrates its 75th birthday this year, and Seattle Parks and Recreation is holding a celebration on July 4.

The celebration at the pool, 8603 Fauntleroy Way SW in Lincoln Park, will begin on the deck at 11 am and include light refreshments and special entertainment. The celebration on the deck is free; regular fees apply for all swims, however the slide will be free all day. See swim schedule below.

The event will also include the unveiling of the restored entry mural, which was commissioned in 1941 when the pool was opened. The mural was restored with help from the Seattle Office of Arts & Culture. A presentation by mural conservator Peter Malarkey will take place in the lobby at 10:15 am.

Swim schedule for July 4

Noon-1:30 pm — Lap and family swims
1:45-4:45 pm — Public swim (slide and diving board open)

    A shuttle van will be available to transport those who are not able to walk down to the pool to/from the parking lots. The shuttle will run before and after the celebration, as needed.

      Thanks, Wendy! I didn’t see anything about that in the Seattle Parks info about the event or we would have included it.
