Free Learn To Swim Classes Offered

Free Learn To Swim Classes Offered

The Parks & Recreation’s tradition of free swim instruction continues with the Winter/Spring session of "Learn To Swim."

Five Parks & Recreation public indoor pools will teach the basics of swimming to children ages 6 to 14 weekday afternoons.

For the past fifteen years, Learn To Swim has been one of Parks & Recreation’s most-attended citywide athletic programs and a shining example of our commitment to the health and safety of New Yorkers from an early age. Over 7,000 people participated in 2002.

Parents should bring their child to the pool with a bathing suit and register between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. As space is limited, they are accepting registration on a first come first serve basis. For more information, call the Aquatics Hotline at (718) 699-4219.

There are locations for the classes in the five boroughs.
