Situated at 9535 Bowdoin Way, Edmonds, the pool is the only swimming pool the city operates. It’s open Mon-Fri 6AM-6:30PM and Sat through Sun 9:30AM – 3:20PM.

This swimming season, Yost Pool will roll out new programs, including Aqua Zumba, Pool Play for ages 6 and under, Pirate Camp, Swim Party, and Family Swim. The pool charges Edmonds residents and non-residents different prices for its various programs.

Swim Party is a new service for groups of up to 15 people. The package includes a room rental and a public swim. Pool Party, on the other hand, is for large groups of up to 100, and features the exclusive use of the pool.

Todd Cort, Recreation Coordinator for Edmonds Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Services, said that there are few differences between lap and public swims at Yost. Having been in operation for the past 39 years, Yost Pool got its name from the Yost family, who donated the property to the city.

Call (425) 775-2645 for daily schedule and (425) 771-1346 for additional information/registration.
