The CRC swimming pool

 

Temporary Closure: In addition to our normal hours of operation, the pool will be closed until further notice on Wednesday's from 1 pm - 3 pm due to student staff schedules. We are working to resolve this issue ASAP and we appreciate your understanding.

You can get a great swim at a comfortable temperature and reasonable price all year round. Our pool is the best in the South Sound for lap swimming and competitive training with 11 lanes in its 50 meter configuration. During open hours, at least 2 lanes are reserved for lap swimming.

Practice your dives in a 12-foot dive tank. Go outside and relax on the sun deck, too, or experience a sauna.

Check out noodles, kickboards, float buoys, and personal flotation devices (PFDs), free of charge. The pool is also fully accessible, with elevators from the locker rooms and an assisted pool lift.

Safety and Courtesy

There are always two trained and certified lifeguards on duty. Like many of our employees, Evergreen lifeguards are students at the college. (Learn about working at the CRC.)

We follow all Red Cross standards as well as state and county regulations. In particular:

  • You must take a shower before you get in the pool.
  • Swim diapers are required for children who have not yet been potty trained.

Please be considerate of other swimmers! Share a lane, if you can, when the pool is busy. Be careful, and follow the posted rules. See the full list of CRC Rules.

Swimming Lessons

Stay tuned! We know these are in high-demand for our community and will begin offering them again in the future.

In general, the pool is open whenever the CRC is open. Plan to get out of the pool 15 minutes before closing time. During the school year, the busiest times are 3 pm – 7 pm.

The Pool will be closed for open lap swimming each week day, from 5-7 pm.
