Southwest Pool Schedule

2022 Summer Operations

Southwest Pool is operating on a limited schedule due to system-wide lifeguard shortages. Many of our core staff are assigned to Colman Pool to ensure full operation of the larger facility that can accommodate many more users on a daily basis.Colman is a summer-only sparkling gem in the Seattle Parks system. Southwest is prioritizing programs for patrons who are limited in their ability to access Colman Pool. Our focus will be on swim lessons for younger children, low income day camp swimming, and programs targeted towards the senior adult population.

Colman Pool is located on the shores of Puget Sound in Lincoln Park.  It is nearly four times the size of Southwest and can accommodate the vast majority of the swimming public’s needs.  Programming at Colman will offer swim lessons for school age youth, lap swimming and open format public swimming. We encourage users to pack a picnic lunch or dinner and enjoy the outdoor experience. The stroll along the beach is a fantastic way to stretch your legs or allow the kids to explore the tidepools.

Thank you for understanding as we work to serve as many swimmers as possible this summer.
