Luther Burbank Swim Areas Closure

Sept 11, 2019 - Luther Burbank Park swim areas closed today due to high bacteria concentrations in water samples collected by King County.

All Luther Burbank Park shoreline areas will be closed for swimming, wading and other water contact activities (including use by dogs) until testing shows the bacteria levels have returned to normal. Signage has been placed on site.

Following protocol, the earliest possible day for re-opening the shoreline areas would be next Wednesday, September 18.

The water will continue to be monitored daily, and the Parks & Recreation Department will update the public as testing information becomes available. Information on the City’s Swim Beach Monitoring Program can be found online.
