|April Pools Day is April 1 at RPAC|
April Pools Day is a special event emphasizing water safety and highlighting swimming lessons which will be offered by the Johnson County Park and Recreation District at four municipal pools. The event will take place from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday, April 1, at the dome-covered Roeland Park Aquatic Center, 4843 Rosewood, Roeland Park.
During the event, RPAC admission will be half the usual rates for Johnson County residents with identification. The discounted rates will be $3 for all ages except ages 2 and under, which are free. Participants who are not residents of these four cities will pay the usual admission of $6 for ages 5 to 59 and $5 for adults 60 and older.
During April Pools Day, instructors will be at the pool to answer questions and pass out brochures and schedules about Learn to Swim Lessons being offered by the Johnson County Park and Recreation District this summer.
April Pools Day is a national educational initiative meant to spread the word on water safety and the importance of learning to swim. The event was established by USA Swimming and by V8 Splash juice beverages and will involve as many as 2,800 pool and swim club directors across the nation. This is the fourth year the event has been offered at the Roeland Park Aquatic Center. Search for the keyword "swimming" to find this program in the JCPRD's Activities Catalog and online listings.
