Seattle Parks and Recreation will hold sales of low cost life jackets one Saturday a month from May through September at Evans Pool, 7201 E. Green Lake Dr. N.
Drowning is the second leading cause of unintentional injury and death among children ages 1 – 14. Wearing a life jacket saves lives. Washington State law requires children ages 12 and under to wear a Coast Guard approved life jacket or life vest on vessels fewer than 19 feet long. In addition, there must be a life jacket on board for each person older than 12 years.
The cost for life jackets, sizes infant to youth large, is $20, and for teens to adult size XXL, is $30. The life jackets are comfortable, high-quality vests in fashion colors. All sales are final. No refunds, no returns.
Purchasers under age 18 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian. Fitters will be on site to help purchaser choose the correct size. The person for whom the jacket is being purchased must be present for proper fitting.
Life jacket sales will be held from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. on the following Saturdays
- May 21
- June 18

This program is in partnership with Seattle Children’s Hospital, Fisheries Supply, and the Coast Guard Auxiliary for their support of this event.
