City seeks input on Green Lake Community Center and Pool replacement project

Plans are in the works to replace the community center and pool at Green Lake, and the City is seeking input from residents on the future location of the facilities.

Seattle Parks and Recreation is still in the early planning phases for determining the new location—currently, six possible sites have been identified, spanning from the greater area around Green Lake Park and Lower Woodland Park.

The Parks department and design team from Miller Hull are hosting an online open house, available now until May 22. The interactive website has information about each location, and includes a questionnaire for users to provide feedback.

Seattle Parks will also host a live webinar presentation on May 13 from noon to 1pm about the relocation project; you can join by registering here.

Seattle Parks says the purpose of the presentation is to weigh the benefits and challenges of each potential location and provide feedback on which locations work best for the community.

The current Green Lake Community Center was built in 1928, and the Evans Pool was added in 1955. Both are open year-round for programs and drop-in use. Seattle Parks is currently conducting building stabilization work—replacing boilers and air handling system—to keep it operational.

As a reminder, the Green Lake Community Center and Evans Pool are closed to the public to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. However, the showers are open to those who need them from Monday to Friday, 10am to 8pm, and Saturdays 9am to 4:30pm.

I don’t understand…are they replacing or moving? If the current facility is irreparable, then why not tear it down and replace with a new facility on the same site?

This is the pool where the MAN changed HIS clothes in the GIRLS locker room, with Seattle’s approval.

That you read MyNorthwest explains a lot about the garbage you post.

sorry you feel different. I think a man should not be allowed to undress in front of female children. The truth isn’t garbage, but it can pain people like yourself. As to reading the vlog explaining something, that would be the same one you’re reading ? That “explains” something to me.

I’m not questioning the story.

I’m questioning where you get your news from good sir.

Now I’m questioning why you feel the need to bring up this particular story on an article about renovating the pool.

There’s something mentally wrong with you that you feel the urge to post an irrelevant far right blog article about a man undressing in a women’s locker room to make some point that is clear to no one but yourself.

Don’t see mention of me regarding the Times. You originally posted MyNorthwest, a noted far right blog catered towards low intelligence, very gullible people.

Again, why are you continuing to post about a man in a women’s locker room? You seemed creepily obsessed with it.

I agree with Truth, Seattle has become too prudish.
