  1. Thank you to the fabulous staff at the Rec Center for finding ways to provide exercise opportunities to the community. It’s so important for physical and mental health right now.

    I’ll be honest, as a Lynnwood tax payer, I’d love to see non-Lynnwood residents paying a bit more to use our municipal facility. It’s sad that Seattleites have no pools open for lap swim right now, but this is our city’s resource that we have been amply taxed for, and I feel like the pricing should reflect that.
