Aquatic Park

9 Great Aquatic Centers

Gwinnett County Parks and Recreation (GCPR) will be hosting fun games, activities and prizes from June 30 – July 4 at various aquatic facilities. Children and adults can participate every day of the week and visit www.gwinnettparks.com to download activity sheets and information. GCPR will be holding these events to increase awareness of water safety now that summer is in full swing. Through various swim classes, public service announcements and distribution of water safety information, GCPR is dedicated to providing residents with the tools they need to prevent water-related injuries.

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, drowning is the sixth leading cause of unintended injury-related death for people of all ages and the second leading cause of death for children ages 1 to 14. Research shows that formal swimming lessons can reduce the risk of drowning by 88 percent among children aged 1 to 4 years. GCPR offers swim lessons for those as young as six months to adults of all ages. Group, private and semi-private swim lessons are available in a variety of class levels to benefit everyone from novice to advanced swimmers. For more information on swim lessons, details about GCPR aquatic centers or other planned events, visit www.gwinnettparks.com.
