Lions Pool Hosts April Pools Day 2024

The City of Yakima’s Lions Pool is hosting a free “April Pools Day” from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm on Saturday, April 6th.

“Every year, many pools around the state host April Pools Day events for families and community members,” said Parks and Recreation Manager Ken Wilkinson. “Our hope is that offering this free event in the City of Yakima will encourage community members to stay safe in the water.”

April Pools Day includes:

  • One hour of free water safety instruction, elementary rescues, life jacket use, boating safety and hypothermia awareness
  • One hour of free swim time
  • A raffle for free life jackets, free swim lessons and door prizes

Lions Pool is located at 509 West Pine Street. Visit or call 509-575-6046 for more information about April Pools Day and other City of Yakima aquatic programs.
