Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R) is joining with other organizations nationwide during the month of May to promote National Water Safety Month. From May 1, through May 31, 2019, PP&R pools will have pledge forms for youth asking them to promise to:

  1. Always swim with a buddy
  2. Look before they leap
  3. Wear a lifejacket
  4. Be cool, follow the rules
