RENTON:  The swimming areas in Gene Coulon Memorial Beach Park reopened on July 31, 2007, after water-quality tests indicated that it is once again safe for swimming and wading. On the advice of the Public Health – Seattle & King County, the City of Renton Community Services department had temporarily closed the swimming area on Friday, July 27, 2007, because of bacterial contamination.
