We are petitioning Seattle Parks and Rec to open Mounger Pool in Magnolia, Seattle for a longer duration than what is scheduled for the 2022 season. We would like the pool to open in early May and extend it through September 30th. This pool is vital to the community and region as it is only 1 of 2 outdoor pools in all of Seattle. Being able to swim at an outdoor pool during Seattle's short summer is essential as well as a safer option during the ongoing pandemic.

The pool serves recreational and competition swimmers, provides swimming lessons for children of all ages, and holds exercise classes daily. It is especially important to our mobility challenged and handicap community. Our Seniors use the exercise classes daily and for many, this is the only form of exercise they are able to do.

While we are aware of staffing issues, we urge you to consider reallocation of staff and budget as well as training of new staff in order to extend the incredibly short season for Mounger Pool.

Swimming is an essential life skill; and this community and the many people who come to swim here from the surrounding region deserve the safest option during the continued pandemic. Thank you!
