Water works wonders

Public swimming pools are the perfect way to spend the day with your kids. Kids love swimming and playing around in the pool and its good for them too. Being active in the water gets them using muscles they do not usually use and, it makes them tired! Protected exposure to the sun gives them and you much needed vitamin D too. There are so many benefits to swimming and once you get your kids there, they will want to go every weekend.

Public pools offering swimming lessons

Most public swimming pools offer swimming lessons for kids and adults. You will need to visit the chosen swimming pool to enquire about times and costs of lessons. Water safety lessons are also offered and are important for childminders, domestic workers, parents and caregivers. So many drowning incidents could have been averted if people were just wiser about water safety. Swimming lessons include the learn to swim program, stroke correction, squad training and even diving lessons at certain public pools.

Water parks

There are some fun and exciting water parks around Gauteng. Indoor, outdoor, heated or cold, you will find water parks with swimming pools for all ages. Obstacle courses on the water, water slides, baby pools with baby facilities as well as braai and picnic areas mean you will be busy all day.

Swim training

Ellis Park has 3 pools one of which is an Olympic sized pool. Most public pools though are quite large and ideal for training in laps. Swim training is excellent for full body workouts, increases flexibility, builds muscle and strengthens the body. Its also great to free your mind of daily stress. Make sure you know the operating times of the swimming pool so you are not disappointed.

Pool party!

So much fun! Enjoy hosting your kids party at one of the public swimming pools in your area. Pay them a visit to see if they offer party facilities and what you will need to do to book the pool for a party. Ensure that there is a lifeguard on duty the day of your party.
