Have fun and play it safe! Seattle Parks and Recreation offers discounted sales of bicycle helmets and life jackets

Bicycle Helmet Sales
Wearing helmets saves lives! King County law requires that every cyclist wear a helmet while cycling. Seattle Parks and Recreation’s Lifelong Recreation staff and volunteers, in partnership with the Cascade Bicycle Club Education Foundation, will sell bicycle helmets this summer for $15 each for riders of all ages. Kids younger than 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian, and all helmets require fitting by a staff or volunteer prior to sale. For more information, please call 206-233-7133 and leave a message for helmet program. Cascade Bicycle Club is at 206-957-6623.

Life Jacket Sales at Green Lake
Parks offers this program in partnership with Seattle Children’s Hospital, the Coast Guard Auxiliary, and Mustang Survival. The cost is $20 for infant and youth sizes (all styles) and $30 for teen and adult sizes (all styles).

The life jackets come in these sizes: Infant, youth, teen, adult small, medium, large, extra large, and XXL. The person for whom the jacket is being purchased must be present for proper fitting.
