The City of Clarksville Parks and Recreation Department invites citizens to take part, as waterparks, pools and other aquatic facilities across the world attempt to break the Guinness World Record of the World’s Largest Swimming Lesson on Friday, June 20 at Beachaven, New Providence, Swan Lake and Smith pools at 10 a.m.

According to the World’s Largest Swimming Lesson™ website, “Swimming is a life-saving skill for children and a vital tool to prevent drowning, the second leading cause of unintended, injury-related death for children ages 1-14. The World’s Largest Swimming Lesson™ was created to serve as a platform to help local community aquatic facilities and the many different national, regional and state wide water safety and drowning prevention organizations work together to tell this important story on a local and national level.”

Participants can register online at recpro.cityofclarksville.com or the day of the event.  The World’s Largest Swim Lesson is free, however if you would like to stay and swim at the pool afterward, you must pay the regular admission price which is $5.

For more details on The World’s Largest Swimming Lesson™, please contact the Clarksville Parks and Recreation at 931-645-7476 or visit recpro.cityofclarksville.com.
