Here’s the latest Lifeguard news for Summer in SeaTac 2024 from the City:

Summertime in SeaTac brings sun, fun, and above all – safe swimming! Read on for the latest news about our lifeguard program for Summer 2024.

SeaTac Parks and Rec was excited to receive more applications this year compared to the last few years, allowing the department to bring valuable lifeguards onboard (pun intended) to serve our community this summer.

SeaTac Lifeguard Schedule
There are currently no lifeguards on duty at the spray park or at the beach at Angle Lake Park.

Lifeguards will be on duty and on the beach beginning June 15, 2024:

  • June 15 & 16 – 12:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.*
  • June 19 – September 3 – Monday-Sunday, 12:00PM – 8:00 p.m.*
  • September 3 – Last day with lifeguards on duty

*Lifeguard schedule subject to change. These hours follow similar hours for lifeguarding around the Seattle/King County.

To oversee the day-to-day operations at Angel Lake, Parks & Recreation has recently hired two positions: a new Aquatic Coordinator and an Assistant Beach Manager. Our Parks & Rec team is also in the process of onboarding 12 lifeguards before the summer season officially begins.

This year, the City of SeaTac has partnered with Jake Davies, with the City of Renton, and Landon Labosky, with the City of Covington, in collaboration with King County, for lifeguard recruitment and training.

A special THANK YOU goes out to Tony Gomez, with the King County Violence and Injury Prevention team.

Just a reminder! Spray Park at Angle Lake Park is NOW OPEN DAILY 11:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m., (Memorial Day through Labor Day)

Just a friendly reminder, at the beginning of summer, Angle Lake is COLD – even on hot days! The lake water won’t often warm up until July.

Water safety is very important when in cold water so please reach for a free life jacket, which is always available at the guard shack all summer long.
