Spend your summer at the pool

Outdoor pool season is here! In greater Seattle (and beyond), that means wave pools, simulated surfing pools, lazy rivers, zero-depth (beach-like) pool entries, aquatic play structures, and slides, slides and more slides. 

We’ve compiled a hot list of outdoor pools and water parks worth a visit this summer. And one tip: Heated outdoor pools are a great destination on cool, cloudy days, too, and bonus, you'll find fewer crowds. For more summer water fun, read our Seattle and Eastside area spray parks guide and our South Sound spray parks guide. Did we miss a great pool? Let us know in the comments.
