Wallingford wading pool open three days longer

Posted by Kate Bergman on August 16th, 2011

The cool weather this summer has forced Seattle Parks and Recreation to not open the Wallingford wading pool for a few days. This means, they’re going to extend the season from August 21st to August 28th.

From the press release:

Because of budget reductions, Parks stretched its summer program budget by planning for a longer season at the wading pools with the most attendance, and a shorter season for those with lower attendance rates, thus keeping as many wading pools open as possible.

The Wallingford pool will be open from noon to 7 p.m. on August 24th, 25th and 26th.

The pools will open on these dates if the weather forecast is for sunny skies and temperatures in the 70s. The wading pool hotline is updated each day by 9 a.m.: 206-684-7796.
