Wallingford Playfield's Wading Pool

At Ask, we do more than answer questions. We also keep promises.

Case in point: the third and final problem Seattleites told us they wanted addressed: Keep the wading pools open more often. We responded by sponsoring three of the city’s most popular pools: East Queen Anne, Powell Barnett and Wallingford.

To celebrate, we threw a pool party!

Of course, by “party,” we mean a full-on celebration at Wallingford, with free ice cream, umbrellas, and a bouncy house! Kids splashed, kids bounced, and waders of all ages enjoyed free ice cream bars from Langley’s own Whidbey Island Ice Cream Company.

Locals may have heard about the surprise event via Wallyhood or the Puget Sound Business Journal, but however they chanced across it, a great time was had by all. And since we set out on this campaign to bring more enjoyment to Seattllites’ everyday activities, we feel pretty good about the results. We suspect Seattle does, too.

Have a great Summer,
