“Pop” Mounger Pool is a community gathering place with grassy sunbathing areas, deck chairs, and picnicking, so all people who enter the pool area during recreational swims need to pay admission, even if not swimming.
FEES AND CHARGES
Parks and Recreation fees and charges are necessary to provide nancial support to the Seattle Parks and Recreation for the operating costs of programs, facilities and grounds.The revenue generated by these fees constitutes only a portion of funds required for operating and maintaining the Parks system. All fees collected from Parks and Recreation activities and concessions are used exclusively for the Parks system as these funds are deposited in the Parks and Recreation Fund, not the City General Fund.
You can pay for classes and other activities in person during regular facility hours, by telephone with a credit card, or online at www.seattle.gov/parks. We accept Visa, MasterCard and American Express. Please make checks and money orders out to the City of Seattle. PLEASE NOTE: Payment is due when you register. If your check is returned for insucient funds, your registration will be cancelled until you pay the amount due plus a $20 fee. (Credit card or cash only are accepted for NSF checks)
Sorry, we cannot conrm class registration by mail or phone but we will notify you by phone if your class is postponed or cancelled. Log in to your online SPARC account to view account information and registration for upcoming classes.
To cover the cost of providing a program, we need a specic number of participants. If too few people sign up for a class, we must cancel it. We’ll notify you (at the latest) one or two days before the class start date. When possible. we will postpone a cancelled class for a week to allow for more enrollments; if the class minimum is not met by then, we will have to cancel it.
We will create waiting lists for all lled classes. Please be sure to sign up if you are interested in a class that is full, because class openings often become available. If demand is high, we will try to form another class. Please contact us for space availability.
It is the policy of Seattle Parks and Recreation that:
Anyone who registers for a class, camp, special event or program that is cancelled for any reason by Parks and Recreation will receive a full refund.
Anyone who registers for a day camp, trip, over- night camp, special event, or facility rental, and who requests a refund 14 days or more before its start (or before the second class of a session), may receive a refund, minus a service charge.
Anyone who registers for a day camp, trip, overnight camp, special event, or facility rental, and who with- draws from the activity fewer than 14 days before its start (or after the second class of a session), will receive no refund.
The entire policy, #7.16, is available online.
Seattle Parks & Recreation wants to ensure that our group swim lessons and summer swim team are available to every- one, regardless of their ability to pay. The Parks Department oers reduced fees for those who may qualify under low income guidelines. To apply for low income fees, please talk to a member of our sta.
