Learn to Swim classes offered in July
The Town of Clifton Park will be opening the Town pools beginning on Memorial Day weekend and the popular Learn to Swim program will return with two sessions of classes. Historically, the Town pools open on Memorial Day weekend. The last two seasons were shorter than normal due to Covid restrictions and a smaller number of available lifeguards.
“The Town is fortunate to have dedicated lifeguards returning to work at our three Town pools, allowing us to open one pool on Memorial Day Weekend, said Supervisor Phil Barrett. We have operated the pools and provided swim lessons throughout the pandemic, when outdoor recreational activities for families were more important than ever.”
Registration for the pools will begin on May 17th. The schedule for each pool will be the following:
1. Country Knolls- May 29th- August 21st
2. Barney Road Pool- June 5th-August 21st
3. Locust Lane Pool – June 23rd-August 21st
