The City of Springfield's Aquatics Department strives to provide safe, healthy, and fun facilities and programs for all people in the community. We offer an opportunity for all City residents in our community to participate in constructive activities which provide an outlet for excess energy, self-expression, and the means of acquiring skills needed later in life. The Aquatics Department implements a range of creative programming designed to stimulate residents of all ages in educational, recreational, and multi-dimensional activities. We are not just teaching people how to swim. We are teaching the necessary building blocks for a successful future. Through one program, you or your child will learn skills that you can apply to any situation outside of the pool. Respect for oneself, respect for others, working as a team, responsibility, awareness, and safety are just a few of the life lessons you will take with you. Why float through life when you can swim?
