Note these schedule changes:

  • The Pool will be open on Presidents Day, February 15
  • No evening Family or Recreational Swim on February 19 (the Cascade Swim Team will still run)

Pool closed February 20 through June

The City will close the Shoreline Pool from February 20 through late June in order to complete major maintenance repairs. Repairs are necessary to meet health and safety codes, and to help extend the pool’s useful life. Repairs include:

  • Partial pool deck replacement
  • Re-plastering of the pool
  • Mechanical upgrades
  • Americans with Disabilities Act accessibility upgrades
  • Repairs and replacement to the clerestory wall and windows
  • Re-sealing the exterior masonry walls
  • Replacement of damaged and deteriorated doors and doorframes
  • Upgrades to the HVAC system and building commissioning
  • Replace natatorium lighting

After 42 years of service, the pool is showing its age. In June 2013, the City had to replace the pool boiler when it failed to operate. It was an expensive and unexpected expense. In 2014, the City conducted a full assessment of the building, its systems, and pool operations. The assessment has helped the City determine what repairs need to be made now to keep the pool functioning for at least six more years, and to avoid costly emergency repairs and replacements.

King County built the Shoreline Pool in 1971 as part of its 1968 Forward Thrust Park and Recreation Bond Initiative. All throughout King County, the Forward Thrust built pools are coming to the end of their useful lives.

This year’s repair work is expected to keep the pool operational until approximately 2022. Beginning this spring, as part of the update to the Parks, Recreation and Open Space (PROS) Plan, the City will conduct a study on the City’s future needs for a pool and aquatic related programs. The City wants to know what kind of demand there may be in the future and what options may be available to continue to provide residents with pool related services.

Find more information on the pool repair and closure on the City's website at or by contacting Capital Projects Manager Noel Hupprich at or (206) 801-2472.

There will be several opportunities for public participation in the future as the City looks at future aquatic needs.
