When it is summer and the sun is out shining bright, people is Seattle have so many choices of beaches and lakeside parks to cool off, but when it cold and raining, as it occasionally does, residents have to go indoors to find a good place to swim. Fortunately, Seattle has a lot of options there too, but if you haven’t been to your local pool in a while, you might be surprised to learn how things have changed. More and more of city’s indoor pools are becoming more like indoor water parks with entrance fees that are just a fraction of what you would pay at Wild Waves. While none of them as spectacular as a full amusement park, the following locations come pretty close.
Though this location is the furthest from Seattle, it is unique because it is one of the few places where you can actually try out the FlowRider Surf Machine that simulates real surfing, something that isn’t easy to do in the Northwest. You’ll also find a corkscrew water slide, a lazy river, a spray area and a Wibit Floating Obstacle Course in addition to the traditional swimming pool, lap lanes and a “warm water pool” set at 102 degrees.

Remodeled fairly recently, the Rainer Beach pool was a new large water slide, lazy river, splash play area and still has that new pool smell. In addition to lap pools and diving boards, this one also features a sauna and a steam room.
This location is pretty great in that it features two large waterslides that zip inside and outside of the building (although in a fully contained tube) big enough to use a inner tube, a play area with sprayers, a lazy river and hot tub. Next door is the family pool area that features a diving board and pool toys and a separate lap swimming area and outdoor deck.
This community pool features a two story tall water slide alongside two small ones, a lazy river, a “running” hot tub area where you are challenged to run against the current as well as lap pool and diving board area.
Plus a lot more Seattle Parks and Recreation have many other indoor and outdoor pools available as well, but they don’t come with all the bells and whistles as the ones mentioned above. You can find them all at http://www.seattle.gov/parks/find/pools.

"One of their team members stopped by my house on Lake Sammamish just two days before my property was to be sold at auction. I told them that I was under water and couldn’t sell. He insisted that I speak with Ky DeWald and Adam Mickelson to see if there was anything that could be done. I finally agreed. They were able to not only stop my auction and get me another 90 days in my house but also put over $125,000.00 in my pocket and sold my house for $1,550,000.00!!! I couldn’t be happier!!! Thanks guys for all the help!"
