Published on: 2020/07/22 - in News

The City has announced physically-distanced swimming lessons will begin at the Outdoor Aqua Park, 303 York Street, on Tuesday, August 4.

A number of classes will be open for registrations on Thursday, July 23 at noon with preschool classes up to Swim Kids Level 4 being taught by parents or guardians in the water.

Swim class choices can be found now at the City of Kingston’s PLAY page. If you are too late to be able to register for your preferred class, add your name to the wait list, as spots often open up.

The City reports these outdoor classes will have precautions in place during the current pandemic.

Precautions include participants being screened by a questionnaire before admission and all lessons will be low ratio and taught at a distance by qualified instructors. Swimmers and participating parents will also be asked to enter and exit the facility with their bathing suits on and to follow posted signage and staff direction regarding use of the pool.
