Seattle Parks and Recreation will join other public and private aquatic facilities throughout Washington to celebrate the 21st Annual April Pools Day on Saturday and Sunday April 19-20. More than 25 facilities throughout the state are working together to help families prepare for a safe summer by hosting free events that offer water safety tips and activities.
Participants of all ages will have the opportunity to learn hands-on water safety in and out of the water. Activities may include practicing wearing and using life jackets, learning about hypothermia, taking a boat ride, practicing reaching and throwing rescues and CPR. Participants can enter a drawing for a free life jacket and other prizes.
Don’t miss this chance to get ready for fishing and boating season by participating in April Pools Day at your local swimming pool. Learn and have fun together as a family!
