April Pool's Day


Apache Junction Parks and Recreation, the Apache Junction Police Department and Superstition Fire and Medical are teaming up once again to hold the annual April Pool’s Day water safety event on Saturday, April 27, at the Superstition Shadows Aquatic Center.

Our water safety instructors, lifeguards and a variety of vendors will be on hand to teach your family about the importance of being safe in, on and around the water. Drowning is silent and can happen in a matter of seconds. Learn how to prevent water related incidents from happening whether at an aquatic’s facility or in your own backyard.

The whole family can learn about home pool safety, boating safety and CPR. Enjoy a mini swim lesson, bounce house, raffles and much more. Swim Instructors will also be there from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. to evaluate your child’s swimming skills so that they can be registered in the proper level for swim lessons this summer. Maricopa County Sherriff’s Office will be on hand to teach participants about lifejacket and boating safety.

There will be free lunch, thank you in part to the AJ Mounted Rangers, and swimming for those who attend the whole event! You must have a wristband to swim and eat. Don’t miss this fun and informative event.

Wrist banding begins at 9:30 a.m.; all participants must have a wristband by 10:30 a.m. to participate in the free swim and free lunch.

Superstition Shadows Aquatic Center is located at 1091 W. Southern Ave. (crossroads are Southern/San Marcos).
