People & Pets Recommended to Stay Out of the Water at Juanita Beach

Published on June 04, 2024

Sign at Juanita Beach stating to stay out of the water due to elevated bacteria.

Beginning June 4, 2024, Public Health – Seattle & King County is recommending that people and pets stay out of the water at Juanita Beach Park for at least one week due to elevated bacteria levels.  Signs will be positioned to indicate that people and pets should stay out of the water. The rest of Juanita Beach Park remains open. 

Water quality staff from the King County Water and Land Resources Division tested the water recently and found that the levels of bacteria at the beach exceeded safe thresholds for bacteria based on the samples collected. King County crews will return to the beach next week to collect further samples.

For additional details, visit King County’s Lake Swimming Beach Data webpage.

Updates about Juanita Beach Park will be posted on the City webpage.

Why is The Swimming Area Closed? Swim Beaches throughout King County are tested weekly by the King County Department of Natural Resources and Parks. If beach water tests high for bacteria, the swimming area will be closed, and there will be no lifeguards on duty. For testing information or to see which beaches are open/closed please visit the King County Lake Swimming Beach Bacteria page
