Seattle Parks and Recreation will hold a life jacket sale at Evans Pool on Saturday, June 19, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Additional sale events will be held on July 17, August 21 and September 18. Don’t miss this opportunity to purchase a stylish, Coast Guard approved life jacket!
The cost for life jackets sizes infant to youth large will be $20; teens to adult size XXL will be $30. 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.
Why buy a lifejacket?
- Washington State law requires children ages 12 and under to wear a Coast Guard approved life jacket or life vest on vessels less than 19 feet long. In addition, there must be a life jacket on board for each person older than 12 years
- Drowning is the second leading cause of unintentional injury death among children ages 1 – 14 years old. Wearing a life jacket saves lives.
We extend special thanks to our partners, Seattle Children’s Hospital, Fisheries Supply, Rehab Without Walls, and the Coast Guard Auxiliary for their support of this event.
The pool is located at 7201 E Green Lake Drive N. The phone number is (206) 684-4961. For more information please call Diane Jones at (206) 684-7440, or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
