Spend your summer at the pool
The school year is finishing, outdoor swimming pools are opening, and boy are we ready to shake off this June-uary weather. It’s time to swim!
We update this guide every year and while we are nearly (please) on the other side of the pandemic, some protocols will remain in place at certain locations, such as booking your swim time online, in advance.
One quick tip before we dive in (heh): Don’t count out a swim on a cooler, cloudy day; you’ll encounter smaller crowds. And now for the goods: fantastic summer swim destinations around Seattle and beyond.
