The popular outdoor pool at McCollum Park has been serving Snohomish County since 1970 and has taught more than 80,000 people how to swim. The pool with a water slide offers swimming lessons, pool rentals, open swims and a summer league swim team through Sept. 3. It is considered to be one of the most affordable aquatics programs in the region.
The complete pool schedule is available for download at www.snocoparks.org.
“Our goal is for swimming to become a lifetime recreational activity for your family,” said Parks Director Tom Teigen. “We want our community to develop the skills for water safety and the ability to swim for fun and fitness.”
The very customized learn-to-swim lesson program includes progressive aqua-tot, preschool and youth classes. Designed to be the most progressive program possible, it is built on components of various curriculum as well as more than 40 years of cumulative knowledge and experience among the staff at McCollum Pool.
