Annually, in early fall, the City offers a process to provide an avenue that could result in partnerships that will increase recreation opportunities for the public, repurpose or recondition park assets for community use, and generate revenue for the City of Everett Parks & Facilities department. Opportunities are posted on the procurement EPIC website. To be notified for upcoming opportunities complete the General RFP for Parks Partnership Interest Form

Low-cost swim lessons for income-eligible residents

The Everett Parks Department will be allocating previously donated scholarship funds for income-eligible Everett residents towards swim lessons at the Everett YMCA.

30-minute group lessons will be $48 off and 45-minute group lessons will be $72 off. If eligible residents prefer private lessons, they will receive $18 off a single lesson or $72 off a four-lesson package. Income eligible individuals and families will also benefit from the YMCA’s “Access For All” program, which offers up to an additional 35% off (depending on household income level).

To learn more and sign up for swim lessons, visit the Everett Family YMCA's website.

Everett residents can swim at the YMCA pool

With an exciting partnership between Everett Parks and the Everett Family YMCA, Everett city residents may use the new Everett YMCA pool — no membership required.

Everett residents can purchase a reduced-price resident day pass at the YMCA: 

  • Youth (0-18) $4.50
  • Adults (19-64) $5.50
  • Seniors (65+) $4.50  
  • Families (two adults and all dependent children) $16

Credit/debit cards preferred, but cash is okay.

Visit the Everett Family YMCA’s website for the current swim schedule. 

Before you go to the Everett YMCA:

Drop in ahead of time to take care of business for speedier entry to the pool. Stop by the Everett YMCA to get a background check and verify residency in advance for speedy entry.

All YMCA visitors (and members) over 16 must show valid ID to enter, and adults (18+) must pass a background check. Residency is defined as living in zip codes 98201, 98203, 98204, 98205, 98206, 98207, 98208 and 98213. Proof of residency is required via a valid Washington State ID, utility bill or tax document.
