A beautiful summers day created the perfect backdrop for Royal Life Saving ACT’s first post covid ‘A Day at the Lake’ event.
A Day at the Lake held at Black Mountain Reserve on Sunday 12 February 2023 is the 6th event since its inception in 2015. Proudly supported by Icon Water and the Australian Government, the initiative provides participants with practical water safety skills to enjoy the water safely this summer. The day also celebrates Lake Burley Griffin and all it has to offer - recreation, fun and beautiful place for Canberrans to come together and enjoy their favourite aquatic pursuits.
RLS General Manager Cherry Bailey said “A Day at The Lake offers such a unique water safety education opportunity for our community, and we’re thrilled to have seen it go off without a hitch again this year. Our thanks go to our sponsors at Icon Water, our supporters, stallholders, staff and volunteers, and of course everyone who came out to join us on the day!”
