The San Leandro Recreation and Human Services Department will operate pools over the summer at the San Leandro Family Aquatic Center, Boys and Girls Club and Farrelly Pool.
Each of the pools offers swim lessons for all ages and levels at a variety of times with American Red Cross certified and trained instructors. To register for swim lessons online, go to: http://bit.ly/SLswim2013 and click Aquatics in the left-hand sidebar.
Recreational swimming is offered at each of the pools at a variety of times and days as well. Thanks to a generous anonymous donation, recreational swimming will be expanded at Farrelly Pool to include the weekends as well as Monday-Thursday evenings.
According to Mayor Stephen Cassidy, “We are delighted that Farrelly Pool will be open to children and adults on the weekends throughout the summer. Keep your kids and yourselves water safe, and enjoy our pools located across San Leandro. Exercise classes, lap swimming and recreational swim are also offered.”
Purchasing a pass saves time (you get to enter 10 minutes before the doors open!) and money (there’s a $25 discount if you purchase before May 24t- plus save $25 more if you register with another family).
