Revised June 14, 2021 to reflect addition of 3 more wading pool locations.
As announced last month, Seattle Parks and Recreation is opening wading pools and sprayparks this summer from Saturday, June 26 to Monday, September 6. In all, eighteen locations around Seattle will be available seven days a week to provide fun, activity and relief for kids, parents and guardians this year.
Wading pools operate when there is no rain in the day’s forecast and the air temperature is expected to be 70 degrees or higher. If unsure, you can call the Wading Pool Hotline for same-day updates at 206-684-7796. The recording is updated by mid to late morning each day.
Here’s a link to a map to see which wading pools or sprayparks are near you. Please also see the rules for using these water features at the bottom of the page. If anyone is sick, or seems sick, please stay home.
