Seattle Parks and Recreation is proud to announce the introduction of discounted drop-in swims at its public pools. Beginning in 2015, individuals that qualify based on income and family size will be able to attend a swim session at a discounted rate.
In Seattle, a city surrounded by water, swimming is an essential life skill. Access and opportunity to both drop-in programs and swimming lessons are key. By learning to swim, individuals gain life skills, have a reduced risk of drowning death and gain opportunities for new activities.
