Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R) is joining with other organizations nationwide during the month of May to promote National Water Safety Month.  Beginning Friday, May 1 through May 31, staff at PP&R pools will be handing out pledge forms for youth asking them to promise to

  • Always swim with a buddy
  • Look before they leap
  • Wear a lifejacket
  • Be cool, follow the rules
  • Learn to swim if you haven’t already! 

Adults and kids may choose to enter a raffle for free swim lessons, life jackets, goggles and sunscreen (one entry per visit).
