2017 What's New

Work Party. Our 2017 annual pool opening Work Party will be held on Saturday, May 6, from 10 AM to noon. Each family who helps will receive five (5) free guest passes as our special thanks. (View photos from previous work parties.)

Early-Release Days. Since all Thursdays in May (5/18 and 5/25) are early release days for Bellingham Public Schools, the pool will open at 1:15pm for Open Swim instead of 3pm. So, the pool will be available for Open Swim from 1:15 - 6:00pm on Thursday, May 18 and Thursday, May 25.

Hot Dogs and Root Beer Floats! Our "School's Out" Party will be held on Friday, June 16, from 2-5pm.

This year we will be serving serving hot dogs and root beer floats. Grab your swim suit and towel; it's Party Time! Parents definitely need this too! Are you interested in helping? For additional information (and to volunteer to help), contact Sharon Loeppky at 223-0200 or Jermaine Larson at 739-7654.
