Seattle Parks and Recreation will sell low-cost life jackets from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, May 17, at Evans Pool (7201 E. Green Lake Drive N.).
The price for life jackets, sizes infant to youth large, is $20; for adult sizes, the price is $30. All sales are final.
A parent or guardian must accompany customers younger than 18. Staff will be on site to help purchasers choose the correct size. The person for whom the jacket is being purchased must be present for proper fitting.
Parks will hold additional life jacket sales from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the following Saturdays: June 21 and July 19 and Aug. 16.
Washington state law requires children ages 12 and younger to wear a Coast Guard-approved life jacket or life vest on vessels that are less than 19 feet long. There must be a life jacket on board for each person older than 12.
Parks offers this program in partnership with Seattle Children’s Hospital, Mustang Survival, and the Coast Guard Auxiliary.
