Summer will be here before we know it, which means it’s time to start preparing to stay safe during all of your aquatic fun this season. This April, eight of our pools will be hosting April Pools Day events for families and community members. These events include FREE public swims, water and boat safety information, and fun activities for kids.
This is a great opportunity to teach your family about water safety while having fun. April Pools Day water safety topics will include:
- Preventing open water drowning
- Lifejacket use and promotion
- Cold water awareness
- Basic water rescue for children
Events and activities vary by pool location. See table below for schedule.
