When it gets hot outside, one of the most pleasurable ways to cool down is to go for a swim. The best time to learn to swim is when you’re a kid and swimming lessons give you the confidence to take to the water. But you’re never too old to learn, and these locations around Denton, Texas, provide learning opportunities for all ages.
Denton Natatorium and Civic Center both offer American Red Cross swimming lessons for tots from age 6 months to 3 years, pre-schoolers aged 3 to 4 years, and ages 6 plus.
