Sprayparks, pre-season beaches and outdoor pools open Memorial Day weekend

Seattle Parks and Recreation has plenty of ways for you to enjoy the sunshine this Memorial Day weekend, including nine sprayparks, two pre-season beaches and two outdoor pools.

 Sprayparks: Grab your little ones and frolic in a spray of cool, refreshing water. Sprayparks create smiles and summer fun from the moment the water turns on Memorial day weekend until they close on Labor Day weekend.

*Spraypark schedules are subject to change. Check here for details.

Pre-season beaches: Take a dip at one of our two lifeguarded, pre-season beaches. East Green Lake and Madrona beaches are open for the pre-season from May 26 through June 22 (Weekdays 2 p.m.-7 p.m.; Weekends 11 a.m.-7 p.m.).

Outdoor Pools:  There’s no shortage of fun to be had at our two unique outdoor pools, which feature daily public swims, family swims, lap swims, themed events and slides.

  • Lowery C. “Pop” Mounger Pool,at 2535 32nd Ave. W, 206-684-4708, is open daily May 12 to Sept. 9. Please note the pool will be closed for staff training on July 9 from 1 – 9 p.m. and July 22 from 8 – 11 a.m. Mounger Pool is really two pools in one place. The “big pool” has a 50-foot corkscrew slide and the warmer, shallower “little pool” is great for relaxing and for teaching little ones. Call the pool to reserve it for your own birthday party or other special event.
  • Colman Pool,at 8603 Fauntleroy Way SW, 206-684-7494, opens for the regular season on June 18 and will remain open until Sept. 3. The pool will also be open on certain pre-season weekends including May 26-28, June 2-3, June 9-10 and June 16-17; the pool will also be open for a post-season weekend on September 8 and 9. Please note the pool will be closed for the Seattle Open Swim Meets July 12-14 and 20-21. The pool enjoys a spectacular view of Puget Sound from its prime location on the beach in West Seattle’s Lincoln Park. It features heated salt water and the Giant Tube Slide!
