After a month-long closure, the Weyerhaeuser King County Aquatic Center (WKCAC) has re-opened! Built in 1990 for the Goodwill Games, WKCAC was closed during the month of August for maintenance. All three pools were drained, cleaned, and repaired. Other work included expanding the dressing rooms and giving the place the ol’ once over with a fresh coat of paint. Check out our Flickr account for some rare shots of WKCAC during the repair work.
There are 1.5 million gallons of water in WKCAC’s 3 pools, and it took 3 days just to drain all the water. Then it took 4 days to fill the pools and another week to filter and warm the water back up to make it perfect for swimming and splashing (and doing cannon balls)!
