(Portland, OR) –

Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R)’s seven outdoor pools open for another fun summer of swimming on Monday, June 15, 2015. The City has seven outdoor and six indoor (open year-round) pools. 

Parents who want to enroll their children in swimming lessons should act now. Lessons are available for all age groups and ability levels. Most sessions include 10 lessons for $52.50. PP&R will also offer a FREE Learn to Swim session from June 15-19. Free lesson registration is in-person only, on Saturday, June 13 from 8:00am-11:30am at your neighborhood pool.

“One of the best things we can do for our kids is to teach them to swim, and how to be safe around water,” says Portland Parks & Recreation Director Mike Abbaté. “Our free swim lessons help make this possible, for all Portlanders.”

Portland Parks & Recreation pools also offer open play swims, water exercise classes, junior lifeguard training, junior swim training, summer swim teams, and special events.

For more information on how to register for swimming lessons or participate in other summer activities, contact the pool in your area or the PP&R aquatics office at 503-823-5130.
