Best Public and Private Swimming Pools in Seattle's East Side Suburbs

We are all gearing up for summer with the weather warming up and Seattle's East Siders are hankering for a pool, especially if the idea of dunking your baby into icy cold Lake Washington doesn't sound like a great option. Sure, you'll do it on a scorcher but think about these swimming pool options for the whole family.  

Bellevue Aquatic CenterThere's the Bellevue Aquatic Center.  While their two pools aren't outdoor pools, there's something to be said for the Warm Springs pool which is a balmy 91 degrees.  It's fabulous for babies and kids so it's worth considering even on a day where it's nice and warm outside.  The Blue Lagoon pool is significantly cooler at 86 degrees but does have a 10 foot slide for the kiddies.  

Triangle Pool - Outdoor Pools Seattle SuburbsThe Triangle Pool on the other hand is an outdoor private pool which is worth joining.  Family membership is $450 and there is a 4 lane pool plus a wading pool for the little ones.  Membership to the club provides full use of the pool for the summer (mid-May through mid-September), a discount and priority registration on their swim lessons, a chance for the kids to join the Triangle Tigersharks Swim Team (at an additional cost), the option to rent the pool for after-hour events, and the use of the picnic area and gas BBQ's for family functions or birthday parties.

Peter Kirk, Kirkland's Outdoor PoolThen there is the fabulous Peter Kirk pool, one of the East Side's only outdoor public pool options with two pools, one being a wading pool for the kiddies.  This is probably the best and most affordable options for outdoor swimming during the 10 days out of the summer nice enough to dive in.  Admission is $4 for each family member and there are different sessions for swim so you will find yourself having to leave, and pay again if you want to luxuriate all day but this is still a great time.
