Seattle Parks and Recreation will join other public and private swimming organizations throughout Washington to celebrate the 18th Annual April Pools Day on Saturday, April 16, 2011. More than 40 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 lifejackets, learning about hypothermia, taking a boat ride, practicing reaching and throwing rescues, and learning about CPR. Participants can enter a drawing for a free lifejacket, as well as other prizes.
Don’t miss this chance to get ready for fishing and boating season by participating in April Pools Day at your local Seattle Parks and Recreation swimming pool. Learn and have fun together as a family!
Please call individual pools for specific activities.
