              Colman Pool History
Colman Pool was built in 1941 and donated to the City of Seattle

beach program. Colman pool replaced the old Lincoln Tide Pool
in 1941. This warm, saltwater pool is constructed of reinforced
concrete and tile. The swimming area of the pool is 20 yards
wide and 50 meters long. Depth ranges from 3 ½ feet to 12 ½
feet under the diving area. There are 8 official 7 ½ foot swimming
lanes for competition. Diving equipment consists of official U.S.S.
1 meter and 3 meter adjustable boards. New in 1998 is a 50’
spiral slide. Water for the 500,000 gallon pool comes from Puget
Sound. It enters through a large number of circulation inlets. The
water supply is captured and delivered to the tank by a 20-hp
pump from the three wells located on the beach. These wells are
6 feet in diameter and approximately 12 feet deep. The water is
