Swimming at the Blue Lagoon

20 years of healthy connections at aquatic center

Ever since the City of Bellevue acquired the Bellevue Aquatic Center from King County in 1997, the facility has been a favorite for area swimmers, with nearly 124,000 visitors last year. The community is invited to celebrate the facility’s 20-year anniversary on Saturday, Sept. 16, 12:30-2:30 p.m. at the aquatic center with free swimming, raffles and cake.

After taking over pool operations, the city added a warm-water pool and big slide. The Warm Springs Therapy Pool, maintained at 92 degrees, is used for water therapy, swim lessons and open swims. Its accessibility features include a wheelchair ramp, gradual entry and two lifts.

The Blue Lagoon Lap Pool is maintained at 82 degrees and features six 25-yard lap lanes and an attached 13-foot dive tank with a diving board and the slide. The Blue Lagoon is used for both recreation and therapy including: open, lap and masters swims; water aerobics; swim lessons; swim teams; and physical, occupational and recreational therapy.
