Dear Valued Customer/Community Member,
Effective Sunday, July 7 the Mount Rainier Pool will be expanding its schedule to include afternoon open swims and Sunday hours. We will also be moving morning water exercise to an earlier time of 7:15-8:15am. This is in addition to the early morning hours and later closure times that were established earlier this year.

NEW! OPEN SUNDAYS
Effective Sunday, July 7, the pool will be open on Sundays. See schedule for more detailed swim information.

NEW! AFTERNOON OPEN SWIM TIMES
On weekdays, the pool will open afternoon Family Swim times between 1-2:30pm to accommodate families with children out of school for the summer. This is in addition to all of the other family times that are offered on our schedule.

AM SHALLOW WATER EXERCISE SCHEDULE CHANGE
The water exercise (shallow water) will be moving to an earlier time, 7:15-8:15am on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

NEW! DEEP WATER EXERCISE
On Fridays, we are also adding a Deep Water Exercise class from 8:15-9am. See schedule for more information.

WATER WALKING
We understand the importance of water walking for older adults including battling the effect of aging, arthritis and osteoporosis. We are proud to announce that we will now be offering water walking seven days a week. See schedule for more information.

WHY THESE CHANGES
The Mount Rainier Pool will be offering swim lessons to around 700 participants this summer. This includes morning, evening lesson and weekend class options. We have made the following changes, and opened lap, family and water walking swims to try to find additional public hours for patrons. The pool was built in 1975 when the population of Des Moines was much smaller and we are working to balance limited water space for all of our users. We hope the changes meet everyone’s needs.

(JULY 17 UPDATE) SATURDAY WATER WALKING

The schedule was fixed to show water walking is from noon-1pm on Saturdays.
