From this day to this coming Saturday. Come get your fill. What?!? Yes. Where?!? The Weyerhaeuser King County Aquatic Center. Don’t worry. It’s the long course….
The newly upgraded Weyerhaeuser King County Aquatic Center will be host to the Speedo Winter Junior Nationals this week. “More than 1,100 of the nation’s top up-and-coming swimmers will compete for national titles beginning Wednesday…” Visit USASwimming.org for tickets, live broadcast and “psych sheets”.
Just because people aren’t swimming right now doesn’t mean this joint isn’t hustling. Construction workers and staff are hard at work, scrubbing the facility, installing solar panels, vents, ducts, ceilings. This place is getting some major love. Seriously, that is our staff hand scrubbing individual tiles. Hard at work, so you can play.
Because it’s fun to wear your Halloween costume for as many extra days as possible before and after the actual holiday itself; King County Parks brings you a couple ‘frightfully fun’ Halloween events for the whole family to enjoy. Haunted Pool & TunnelFriday, October 25, 6 – 7:30 p.m. pool swim & 8 – 9:30…
