Every year, the team that oversees Parc Jean-Drapeau's sports facilities is working in collaboration with the Québec Lifesaving Society and is actively involved in National Drowning Prevention Week. In fact, every day, a series of prevention activities will be featured at our two sports facilities: the Jean-Doré Beach and the Aquatic Complex.
Daily, three activities, based around current and entertaining themes, will be held in each of the facilities:
- The "Swim to Survive" challenge
- An introduction to life-saving activity
- An aquatic activity
Happy NPDW, everyone!
