PHOTOS: Scenes From Ribbon Cutting Ceremony At Evergreen Aquatics Center
On Saturday morning (May 1), numerous residents and dignitaries gathered for a ribbon-cutting ceremony at White Center’s Evergreen Community Aquatics Center, marking the official grand re-opening of the pool, which was closed by the county last August.
On hand with large, oversized, fully-functioning sharp scissors were King County Executive Dow Constantine, Rep. Sharon Nelson, Burien Mayor Joan McGilton, Deputy Mayor Rose Clark, Evergreen Aquatic General Manager Joel Schweiger, Rep. Eileen Cody, and Greg Duff, former President of the North Highline Unincorporated Area Council.
After the ceremonies, the pool was opened to all for a free swim.
The next free swim will be after the White Center Spring Cleanup on Saturday, May 15th (more info here from our sister site The White Center Blog).
