The pool is divided into two halves by a movable bulkhead. Both sides are capable of having a six lane 25-yard pool with the other half setup as a 15-yard pool. The deep-end reaches a depth of 12 feet and has two diving boards, while the shallow end is 3 feet to 3.5 feet. The pool temperature is 83-85 degrees.  It was built in 1975 as part of the Forward Thrust Movement. The pool is the home site for the Mount Rainier Swim and Dive Teams, all Highline School District Dive Teams, and Seattle Metropolitan Aquatics Team.  In 2018 a new pool shell was added with improvements for water quality and an additional ADA lift for access to both sides of the pool.
