The Tukwila Pool Metropolitan Park District (TPMPD) released an Aquatics Facility Feasibility Study Report from consultants Schemata Workshop, Inc. and Counsilman-Hunsaker on May 13, 2024, and they’re seeking public feedback.

The study’s purpose is to understand and evaluate options for improving aquatic programs, which include meeting the expanding demands for aquatics in Tukwila, and considerations for renovating or replacing the 50-year-old facility.

The study was initiated in April 2023 and has been completed with the aid of a $100,000 Parks Aquatic Facilities Program Grant awarded to the TPMPD from King County.

The consultant team performed an assessment of the existing pool facility, evaluated multiple sites, reviewed current aquatics programming, and participated in public outreach. This outreach included a community survey and three public workshops that focused on Market Analysis, Programming Options, and Conceptual Planning.

Informed by input received from the public and TPMPD stakeholders,  the study includes options for remodeling the existing facility, expanding the existing facility, or demolishing it for a new facility on the existing site. It further outlines cost and potential funding models for the three options.

The study will guide the TPMPD to identify and analyze community needs, research options for long-term sustainable aquatic programs for the Tukwila Community, and address requirements for the aging facility.

TPMPD Seeking Public Feedback

The general public, interested parties, and stakeholders are invited to comment on the release of the report.
