Summertime is pool time, but before jumping in, know how to stay safe. The Wellington Aquatics Complex will host a free water safety event on Saturday, June 1 from 9 a.m. to noon. The event, called Make a SPLASH (Safety and Prevention Leaves All Swimmers Happy), will include vendors such as Palms West Hospital and Palm Beach County Fire-Rescue discussing water safety. There will also be lifeguards demonstrating a near-drowning scenario.
The Wellington Aquatics Complex is located at 12150 W. Forest Hill Blvd. For hours of operation and rates, visit www.wellingtonfl.gov. For more information, call Aquatics Supervisor Eric Juckett at (561) 753-2497.
