Summer is nearly here and that means days by the pool and at the beach. Before you venture into the water, make sure you and your family get safely prepared for seasonal water-related activities. Attend April Pools Day on Saturday, April 15. Check out the safety fair in the lobby from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and enjoy pool activities from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. at the Mountlake Terrace Recreation Pavilion pool, 5303 228th Street SW in Mountlake Terrace.
April Pools Day is a free, family event sponsored by Edmonds Family Medicine (EFM), Swedish Edmonds Hospital, and the Mountlake Terrace Recreation Department to promote water safety and swimming as a healthy lifestyle.
Get ready for all kinds of water activities. Learn about how to be safe and what you can do. We are teaming up to provide participants with information and activities promoting water safety and life jacket use.
To receive a free pass for a Recreation Swim at Mountlake Terrace pool from 6:15 – 7:45 p.m., participants must complete the water stations in the pool from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m.
There will be a raffle for a set of swim lessons (sponsored by EFM), life jacket and other prizes. To win a raffle prize, you must complete the water safety stations and be present at the drawing at 6:00 p.m.
