Aquatics Program Changes for Fall 2022:  

Evans, Medgar Evers, and Queen Anne pools to reopen as summer aquatics season ends 

Seattle, WA— Seattle Parks and Recreation will reopen Evans Pool (Green Lake), Queen Anne Pool, and Medgar Evers Pool to the public for open swim, lessons, and programming starting the week of September 19.  

During the closures, facility repairs/improvements have taken place at all three of these facilities.  

See schedule and programming for these pools here: Queen Anne Pool, Medgar Evers Pool, and Evans Pool.  

The shower program at Green Lake Community Center will be relocated from the Evans Pool showers to the locker room in the community center.
