School’s out. Everybody hit the pool.

For instance, Renton’s Henry Moses Aquatic Center opens Saturday and will be open every day until Sept. 2.

The center, at 1719 S.E. Maple Valley Highway, boasts 26-foot-high water slides, a 9,000-square-foot leisure pool and a 3,300-square-foot, six-lane lap pool. The leisure pool includes a zero-depth entry, wave machine, water-spray play area, lazy river, island lagoon, two water slides, a water-play structure, toddler-water area and several spray features.

And the center will celebrate 10 years of operation with an Aug. 16 tiki party from 8 to 10 p.m.

Renton’s Gene Coulon Memorial Park and Kennydale Park beaches on Lake Washington also open Saturday — with lifeguards — from noon to 8 p.m. each day.

Check with your local parks and recreation department for sites close to you. And if you or your child don’t swim well, enroll in lessons.
