If you live in the Ballard area or around, and you want to go swimming, the Ballard Pool is a good spot. It is located right next to Ballard Highschool. The Ballard pool has pretty much everything, many lap swimming lanes, a huge pool for swimming, a diving board, swing, water pool, lockers to lock your stuff in, showers, and some equipment for exercising. It is very inexpensive, fun, and healthy. They also have swim classes that you can sign up for any age, they even have baby swim lessons for toddlers ages 6months and up! Great place for the community.
