The Seattle Southside Chamber of Commerce will be holding the re-opening of the Des Moines Mount Rainier Pool with a celebration and ribbon cutting on Saturday, March 16, 2019, at 1:30 p.m. The 43-year-old facility had major renovations done in 2018, which included replacing the pool liner, bulkhead, tiling, and surge tank. The pool roof, failing brickwork, and clerestory windows were also replaced or repaired. “We are excited to celebrate the re-opening of the Mount Rainier Pool,” Andrea H. Reay, President/CEO of Seattle Southside Chamber said. “The pool provides valuable services to our community, and with the remodel complete, we look forward to many more years of use.” Mount Rainier Pool originally opened on Sept. 15, 1975.

The Chamber and Mount Rainier Pool invite the community to join them on March 16 as they gather to celebrate the re-opening of the pool.
