Cooling Centers

Four Seattle Community Centers have air conditioning and will be open to serve as cooling centers beginning July 26th through at least July 28th from 2:00 PM – 8:00 PM each day. Additional cooling centers will be available across the city, including at specific libraries and senior centers. See the full list of cooling center locations here.


Looking for ways to stay cool this week? We have multiple ways to hit the water and beat the heat, icnluding indoor & outdoor pools, wading pools, sprayparks, and lifeguarded beaches. See our schedule for summer aquatics here. We encourage everyone to only swim where a lifeguard is present.

Citywide Response

The City of Seattle is working together with our regional partners to prepare for these extreme temperatures including monitoring critical infrastructure and air quality and providing resources to help keep residents cool. Cooling centers will be available across the city, and outreach teams are on the ground working with our most vulnerable residents to prevent heat illness in these extreme conditions. Details here.
