City of Georgetown Parks and Recreation will host a free Water Safety Day event from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. on Saturday, May 20, at the Georgetown Recreation Center outdoor pool, 1003 N. Austin Ave.
The educational family event is designed to increase public awareness about drowning prevention and water safety as we head into the summer swim season. Attendees will learn important safety topics such as drowning prevention, water rescue skills and proper life jacket use.
Vendors include the Georgetown Fire Department, Georgetown Camp Goodwater, Georgetown Adventure Camp, Georgetown Learn to Swim, the American Red Cross, Colin’s Hope and the Lake Georgetown Corps of Engineers.
Once attendees visit all of the vendor booths, they will receive a discount on a City of Georgetown seasonal swim pass or summer swim lessons. Attendees are also welcome to stay and swim, and daily pool fees will be waived for this event. Children 6 and younger must have a guardian actively participating with them in the water at all times.
