During the summer Citiparks offers a variety of programs and activities at outdoor pools throughout the city. Talk to the head lifeguard for more information about programs scheduled at your pool. Please note: You must have a pool pass to take part in any aquatics program (except for swim teams and the free "Learn to Swim" camp).
Adult Lap Swim (For individuals 16 years and older)
Adults 16 years of age or older and competitive high school swimmers are welcome to use the pool to swim laps. Swimmers must be able to swim the length of the pool back and forth in an orderly fashion. Kickboards and pull buoys are available.
Water Aerobics (for individuals 16 years and older)
Enjoy a water aerobics class using the resistance of water to tone and increase strength as well as cardio fitness. This program creates no stress on the joints and is great for swimmers and non-swimmers.
Senior Water Aerobics
Take aerobics at a more leisurely pace with other seniors. This great low-impact workout uses various aquatic programming equipment and allows you to work at your own pace.
Swim Teams (6 to 18 years old)
Join your local pool team to compete against teams from other Citiparks pools throughout the summer. You might even compete in the Championship Swim Meet in August! Ask the head lifeguard at your local pool how to become a member of the swim team.
Throughout the summer, lifeguards organize water shows and carnivals at community pools. Talk to the head lifeguard at your local pool about joining in the fun.
Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh takes part with games and prizes for all ages!
