PHOTOS: Evergreen Community Aquatics Center Re-Opens With A Splash
After being closed by King County on Aug. 31, 2009, on Monday (April 19), the newly-dubbed “Evergreen Community Aquatics Center” re-opened with swimming lessons, open laps and more.
The big Grand Opening is scheduled for Saturday, May 1st, with a free public swim. Another free swim is scheduled to immediately follow the White Center Spring Clean on May 15th.
The Evergreen Community Aquatic Center, formerly Evergreen Pool, is located at 606 SW 116th Street next to the Evergreen High School campus. Built as one of the forward thrust bond issue pools in the 1960â€™s, until last year it was operated by King County. In January, ownership of the pool reverted to The Highline School District, which did not have the funding to re-open the pool.
Here’s a link to the pool’s schedule, which includes pricing info (PDF file).
