Swimming Lessons

Swim lessons for school-aged children will be offered throughout the summer at Marine Park Aquatics Center and Forest Park Pool.

A minimum of five participants is required and class size is restricted to 10. In addition, total participant enrollment for all four sessions may be limited based on the total number of instructors available.

Fee for each session: $30 (Financial assistance is available.)
