National Drowning Prevention Week – Free Swim July 19th

By July 18, 2023July 20th, 2023Events, Ward 1

This week, through to July 22nd, we are recognizing National Drowning Prevention Week by welcoming residents for a free swim on Wednesday July 19th at select pools across the City.

Staff will be on site delivering drowning prevention messages, information, handouts, colouring sheets, fun activities and more to help educate families about the importance of water safety.

According to the Lifesaving Society, over 400 Canadians die in preventable water-related incidents annually. Making a splash at pools, lakes, rivers, beaches should be positive experience for everyone and water safety is essential.

Free swims will take place on Wednesday July 19th at the following locations and times: 

Don McLean Westacres Outdoor Pool

1:10 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Lions Club of Credit Valley Outdoor Pool

1:45 p.m. to 4:45 p.m.
