The Mountlake Terrace Recreation Pavilion pool (5303 228th Street SW) will reopen beginning Monday, November 23, 2020 on a limited basis. Hours of operation will be 7:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Monday through Friday for lap swimming, water walking or suspended individual water running or exercise.
To participate, patrons must first call (425) 776-9173 during the aforementioned hours and make a reservation, as attendance is limited to comply with the state’s COVID-19 regulations.
Lap swimming will be permitted for two swimmers per lane, with five lanes available. Three individuals may participate in the lazy river for water walking and two people may participate in individual exercise in the deep area. Sessions will last one hour with 15 minutes in between sessions for sanitizing equipment and hard surfaces.
This schedule is temporary as the city is working on staffing and compliance with state regulations. Information about the pool schedule as well as any changes is available at www.mltrec.com/531. Changes will be announced on the city’s social media sites (“Mountlake Terrace Recreation & Parks” and “City of Mountlake Terrace Government” on Facebook, “CityofMLT” on Twitter, and “mltrecreation” on Instagram) in addition to our website at mltrec.com.
