The Corpus Christi Parks & Recreation Department’s Aquatics Program staff encourage residents to build a life-long passion for swimming while enjoying the water. We offer general swim, lap swim, swim lessons and water aerobics. The department is dedicated to providing high quality instruction in a fun and friendly environment. 


Through our swim lessons we teach swimmers of all ages and skill levels to master swimming while also teaching the importance of water safety. Please view ‘Swim Lesson Levels’ in the resources portion of this page for more details on the structure of our learn-to-swim program.

Looking for a great way to get a low impact workout? Join us in the pool for this program. The instructor incorporates traditional workouts for the waist in neck-high water. The resistance of the water makes the workout feel far more intense, while the water cushions you from the impact. Please note that the course will be adjusted to fit the audience that attends.

AGES: 13+

FEES: $4/person/day, or purchase a punch card for $24 (pay for 6 visits and get 1 free)

SCHEDULE: Tuesday–Friday, 6:30pm–7:30pm at Collier Pool
