Spring break is the time of year when many families head for the beach and warmer weather. But you don't have to go to far away places for for your kids to have some swimming fun.

It doesn't need to be Spring Break to enjoy the District's Parent/Child Friday Night Swim This regularly scheduled swim session is for families to enjoy our heated, indoor pool during a time when no lessons or fitness classes are scheduled. An adult family member (parent, guardian, grandparent, aunt, uncle, etc.) must accompany youth to pool area and remain in the pool or on the deck at all times. The cost is $5.00 per family (up to 4; each additional person is $1.00).
