Pool & Sauna

Come to the Evergreen pool for lap swimming, diving, lessons, and more. Or enjoy the relaxing and spacious saunas.

The CRC swimming pool

You can get a great swim at a comfortable temperature and reasonable price all year round. Our pool is the best in the South Sound for lap swimming and competitive training with 11 lanes in its 25 meter configuration. During open hours, at least 2 lanes are reserved for lap swimming.

Practice your dives in a 12-foot dive tank. Go outside and relax on the sun deck, too, or experience a sauna.

Check out noodles, kickboards, float buoys, and personal flotation devices (PFDs), free of charge. The pool is also fully accessible, with elevators from the locker rooms and an assisted pool lift.

You can reserve time at the pool for diving instruction, youth groups, pool parties, kayaking roll classes, and more. Depending on your group’s size and needs, you may pay the standard daily access fee or a group rental rate.

Complete a request form and we’ll help you get the best day, time, and rate.

Safety and Courtesy

There are always two trained and certified lifeguards on duty. Like many of our employees, Evergreen lifeguards are students at the college. (Learn about working at the CRC.)

We follow all Red Cross standards as well as state and county regulations. In particular:

  • You must take a shower before you get in the pool.
  • Swim diapers are required for children who have not yet been potty trained.

Please be considerate of other swimmers! Share a lane, if you can, when the pool is busy. Be careful, and follow the posted rules. See the full list of CRC Rules.

Swimming Lessons

Stay tuned! We know these are in high-demand for our community and will begin offering them again in the future.
