Drowning Prevention Programs

Drowning prevention programs for ages 4 and up are an excellent way to get started in the water and a perfect lead up to swim lessons.

Programs are provided by the Fort Worth Drowning Prevention Coalition, a city partner, throughout the summer including two sessions hosted by the city (one session at Marine Park Aquatic Center and one session at Forest Park Pool). For dates, locations, registration info and more about preventing drowning, visit the Coalition's website.
