Even though the days of basking in the sun by the pool are coming to a close, that doesn’t mean you can’t get your aquatic fix. We’ve rounded up the best indoor pools around Seattle (and beyond) where your little water bugs can splash around on a cold, rainy day. The best part? For those pools with hot tubs, you may even get to enjoy a few moments to yourself.
If you're looking for an indoor pool with lots of bells and whistles, the Snohomish Aquatic Center is your one stop destination for family fun. Opened in February of 2014, this ginormous indoor facility boasts a giant corkscrew water slide, lazy river, spray area and FlowRider surf machine, so your kids can hang ten year-round. The facility also has a recreation pool with lap lanes and basketball hoops, an open area for kids to play or tots to get their toes wet and a Wibit floating obstacle course. The best part? The water here is kept at a toasty 84-86 degrees. Not only is it heaven getting in, but it feels so nice you may never want to get out. Looking for something a bit warmer? The warm water pool is even toastier at 102 degrees. Who says you can't soak away the winter blues?
Psst! The weekends can get really busy, so plan on arriving at least 30 minutes before the start of the swim session you want to attend. Check the pool schedule before you go.
Good to Know: If you’re looking for a place to throw your water bug’s next birthday bash, the Aquatic Center offers a variety of party packages on Saturdays and Sundays. Packages start at $225 and include pizza and drinks, pool time and time in the party room for up to 12 partygoers.
