Garden City Recreation Commission currently runs Swim Lessons through June and July at the Big Pool. Our American Red Cross based swim program creates an ideal environment to learn the fundamentals of water safety as well as stroke development and refinement. Participants will be given a report card to track their progress and indicate if they are ready to pass on to the next level.

  • Proper swim attire is required, no additional clothing (rash-guards are okay) as this inhibits proper movement when learning to swim.
  • Make-up classes will not be offered unless GCRC has to cancel a class day.
  • No refunds will be given after the first class.
  • If GCRC cancels a class, we will make every effort to make up the class on one of the regular scheduled lesson days; however there is a possibility that classes would have to make up on a weekend.

All swim lessons are held at the Garden City Big Pool located at 504 E. Maple.
