April Pools Day teaches water safety to Rainier Beach community

The second annual April Pools Day event at Rainier Beach Pool was a success! Thank you to the 150+ visitors who came to the pool and helped Seattle Parks and Recreation spread the word about water safety.

Later this summer, Green Lake Community Center/Evans Pool will be hosting low-cost life jacket sales on June 20, July 18 and Aug. 15. More details to come!
