Medgar Evers Pool Schedule

Medgar Evers Pool will re-open to the public for open swim, lessons, and programming starting the week of September 19, 2022.

Watch this page for schedule updates! 

(To ensure that our open summer beaches were fully staffed, Seattle Parks and Recreation took advantage of several planned pool closures for construction work by redirecting lifeguards at these sites to beaches. This means that Medgar Evers Pool, along with Evans and Queen Anne pools, were closed for the summer. Rainier Beach, Ballard, Meadowbrook, Madison, Southwest, Colman, and Mounger pools have all been open this summer.)


Program Descriptions

Lap Swim is a continuous lap swim for swimmers of all ages; we divide the lanes according to speed levels.  

Adult and Senior Swim Adult and Senior Swim is time set aside for recreational swimming for adults 18 or older. We set aside one part of the pool for lap swimming and leave the rest of the pool available for less structured swimming or water fitness activities.

Deep & Shallow Water Fitness is a combined deep & shallow-water fitness class using resistance equipment that not only burns calories, but strengthens muscles while shaping and toning the entire body. This 45-minute class is great for hips, thighs, arms, and abdominals.  

Shallow Water Fitness Set to energizing music, this is a heart-pounding, muscle toning workout that is easy on your joints but still has all the benefits of a total body, aerobic workout. Participants can work at their own pace. Active class time is 45 minutes.

Public Swim: These sessions are for families and children to come and play in the water. Children under 4 feet tall and under 6 years old will be required to have a parent stay within arm's reach of them at all times in the pool.  Only 2 younger children per parent during the swim.  A parent may bring a group of older children up to ten per adult making sure they are supervising the group.  This swim time may be shared with another program going on at the same time.  Pool toys and equipment may be used at the lifeguard's discretion. Swim tests required to enter deep end for youth under 18 and life jackets available upon request.
