April Pools Day Water Safety Awareness

Memorial Park Pool in Barrio Logan


April Pool‘s Day is a water safety festival. We set up a booth, along with several other organizations, to support the community effort to prevent drowning. Those who attended had an opportunity to meet Josh the Otter, wear lifejackets, play with giant inflatables, learn how to provide CPR, play games and make crafts in the KidsZone. Check us out as we read picture books to kids about water safety!
