Cooling centers

Four community centers in Seattle are air-conditioned and will be open to serve as cooling centers starting July 26e until at least July 28e from 2:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. each day. Additional cooling centers will be available throughout the city, including at specific libraries and senior centers. See the complete list of cooling center locations here.


Looking for ways to stay cool this week? We’ve got multiple ways to hit the water and beat the heat, including indoor and outdoor pools, wading pools, spray parks, and supervised beaches. Check our schedule for summer water activities here. We encourage everyone to swim only where a lifeguard is present.

City-wide response

The City of Seattle is working with its regional partners to prepare for these extreme temperatures, including monitoring critical infrastructure and air quality and providing resources to help keep residents cool. Cooling centers will be available across the city and outreach teams are working on the ground with our most vulnerable residents to prevent heat illnesses in these extreme conditions. Details here.
