Doesn’t it feel like summer just started? And yet here we are, reporting that the wading pool over at the Wallingford Playfield closes in just one week. Rats. Boo. Phooey.
Well, the good news is that the season was supposed to end today; but since we’ve had such a craptastic summer, Seattle Parks and Rec has decided to extend the season by three more days. Next week, the wading pool will be open Wednesday-Friday (8/24-8/26) from noon to 7pm, if the weather forecasts call for 70 degree temps. You can always call the wading pool hotline on the day of for the most up-to-date info: (206)684-7796.
Incidentally, I love our wading pool’s lifeguard this year. He’s an older gentleman with a penchant for Motown, Funk, and Disco, and his music turns the whole wading pool into a giant baby rave. I’ve been especially appreciative of “Disco Inferno” (Burn, Baby, Burn) because it always serves as a reminder to slather up the kiddos with more sunscreen. Thanks, Mr. Lifeguard!
