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.

NOTE: April Pools Day events for 2016 are currently over but there's always next year so keep an eye out for updates to this page starting around March 2017.
