Don’t let this opportunity swim past you

April 18, 2013

Don’t be fooled by those April showers, summer is just a couple of months away!

Learn to swim at one of Portland Parks & Recreation’s (PP&R) 13 pools. PP&R offers swim lessons for everyone, no matter your age or skill level.

Registering online is a good way to beat the last minute rush. You can also register by phone or mail. Your neighborhood pool will start registering walk-in sign-ups beginning June 15.

You can register online now on the PP&R website or call (503) 823-5130 to have a summer program guide and lesson registration form mailed to you.

Swimming is a skill that lasts a lifetime; it’s never too late to start.
