The final Seattle Parks and Recreation low cost life jacket sale is 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 15, at the Evans Pool, 7201 E. Green Lake Dr. North in Seattle.

Cost for life jackets sizes infant to youth large is $20, and for teens to adult size XXL is $30. The life jackets are comfortable, high-quality vests in fashion colors. All sales are final.

Customers younger than 18 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian. Fitters will be available to help choose the correct size.
