Seattle Parks and Recreation is hosting its Summer Splashtacular on Saturday with free swimming, free activities, fun and games at select pools and beaches around the city. The program is intended to highlight drowning prevention and safe swimming practices.
In our neck of the woods, there’s wading pool toys and activities from 1-4 p.m. at the Green Lake wading pool, plus Oodles of Noodles, from 12-6 p.m., at West Green Lake Beach, 7201 E Green Lake Dr. N.
Kids can enjoy water play in shallow water with lifeguards present while playing with oodles of noodles. A noodle is a brightly colored floatation aid that kids find irresistibly fun for playing. Come by and try swimming with a lifejacket.
