Every year, many pools around Washington state host April Pools Day events for families and community members. Each two-hour event is designed by the pool and includes a combination of water safety activities and free swim time. Many pools offer:

  • One hour of free water safety instruction, elementary rescue and life jacket use
  • One hour free swim
  • A raffle for free life jackets, free swim lessons and door prizes

Some pools offer water safety activities and free swim at the same time. Contact your local pool for details.
