Parks & Recreation Offering Spring Swim Lessons at a Pool near You

Online registration begins December 1

The City of Albuquerque Parks and Recreation Department today announced the dates for spring swim lessons. Beginning Sunday, December 1, families can register for lessons online or at one of the City’s five indoor pools.

“It’s never too early to start thinking about pool safety,” stated Dave Simon, Director of Parks and Recreation. “Our top-notch swim lesson instructors want all of Albuquerque’s kids to be safe and have the skills necessary for some fun in the pool. And who knows, we may be able to inspire the next Katie Ledecky or Michael Phelps right here in the Duke City.”

Spring swim lessons are offered at West Mesa Aquatic Center, Sandia Pool, Highland Pool, Los Altos Pool, and Valley Pool. The cost for each session is $35. Online registration begins December 1, 2019.
