Meydenbauer Bay Park swimming area is currently closed. According to the City of Bellevue, water quality tests showed increased levels of bacteria in the water.

The closure of the swimming area was a result of the direction of Public Health – Seattle and King County. King County routinely tests water quality at freshwater swimming beaches throughout the area.

The park is still open for visitors. Signs are posted around the area to deter anyone from going in the water.

The other beaches in downtown Bellevue remain open. This includes Chism, Cylde, and Enatai. Lifegaurads are at all of those locations between 12pm and 7pm.

The swimming area will reopen when testing indicated bacteria counts return to low-risk level.

  1. For at least the past 2 weeks the beach and floating island has been full of feces from geese and no one bothered to clean it. I asked several lifeguards if they would be the ones cleaning the beach and the floating island. They were not sure whose responsibility it was. It was quite dirty and someone or group should be responsible for allowing this to happen. It appears that our tax dollars are not spent properly. This should not have happened. It would have taken maximum of 1 to 1.5 hours to clean up . Thanks Kara for reporting this and I hope city leaders and individuals in charge will not let this happen in the future. If you or someone can inform them it would be greatly appreciated.
