Construction Underway on Colman Pool Repairs, Path May Be Busy

Seattle Parks and Recreation is currently working on improvements to Colman Pool in Lincoln Park.

Construction fencing is in place and the contractor, Orca Pacific, will use the pathway along the shoreline of Lincoln Park to move all materials and equipment associated with the project. The path to the pool will be busy with construction related traffic each weekday from 6:00 am. to 5:00 pm, with possible work on weekends, through June 30, 2012. The contractor will be in control of this traffic and will maintain a high degree of awareness and customer service at all times.

The current phase of work addresses a variety of much needed large scale repairs, including replacement of part of the pool deck, pool gutters, and upper section of the pool shell. The contractor will also install a new plaster lining to increase the life expectancy of this gem.

After opening in 1941, Colman Pool has seen various improvements over the years; the last major renovation took place 20 years ago. It is Seattle’s only outdoor saltwater pool and a truly unique asset Seattle’s park system, and these investments will ensure it is available for the next generation of Seattle youth and adults.
