Seattle Parks and Recreation will join other public and private aquatic facilities throughout Washington to celebrate the 14th Annual April Pools Day on Saturday, April 21.
More than 45 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, including practicing wearing and using lifejackets, testing foul-weather gear, taking a boat ride, practicing reaching and throwing rescues, and learning about CPR. Participants can enter a drawing for a free Mustang lifejacket as well as other prizes.
Nearest Parks pool events will be at Queen Anne Pool, 1920 First Ave. W., from 3 to 4 p.m. and Ballard Pool, 1471 N.W. 67th St., from 10 a.m. to noon.
For more information, phone Queen Anne Pool at 386-4282, or Ballard Pool at 684-4094.
