Swim Lessons

Swimming is one of those life skills everyone should have, if only for safety reasons. 

That’s not all. You can’t beat swimming for building cardiovascular fitness and all-over muscle strength. And, since it’s easy on joints, swimming offers an ideal way to stay fit as you age, or make a comeback after an injury.

So jump in…we offer year-round swim lessons for all ages and abilities, from the most tentative child to the beginner adult or someone looking to simply improve their technique. Our swimming programs are designed to help you develop your skills progressively. 

NEW!! Summer Swim Team

The Park Ridge Park District will be offering a new competitive summer swim team.  The team will provide the community with an age group swim team for the summer season. The Park District's goal is to provide a competitive swim team experience at a recreational level for girls and boys ages 6-18 years old.

The emphasis is placed on learning competitive skills, enjoyment of the sport and a lifelong participation in swimming. The team has been accepted into the Northern Illinois Swim Conference.. We will have meets against other local park district teams on Wednesday nights.
