McCollum Park Pool - Permanently Closed

Subfacility of McCollum Pioneer Park

McCollum Park Pool Permanently Closed

McCollum Park has been selected as the best County/publicly owned site to develop the new Snohomish County Food & Farming Center. The new facility will likely be in the location of the McCollum Park pool. The decision to permanently close the pool was based on the critical need for this facility to support farmers across the region as well as the high cost of repairing the pool. As a 50-year-old facility, the pool would have needed $7 million in repairs to continue operating. This was too high of an expenditure for an outdoor pool with only 3 months of operation a year and considering all the existing improvement needs across the County’s 12,000-acre park system. 

We understand that many families and members of the community may be disappointed the pool has closed permanently. We are grateful we were able to provide this community resource to Snohomish County for so long and we look forward to serving the community in a different way with the Snohomish County Food and Farming Center. This vital resource will directly support local farmers, strengthen food systems and address food insecurity.
