About Aquatics

Swim Lessons

Queensbury Parks and Recreation has been a valuable asset toward educating the children of our and surrounding communities for nearly 50 years. Our quality aquatic programs run on a year round basis and include Youth Swim Lessons, Infant/Parent & Toddler/Parent and Aquaerobic classes taught at the Queensbury Elementary School Pool from early fall to spring. Adult Lap swimming is available during the weeknight evening hours and Family Recreational Swim times are held Saturdays, November through April. Gurney Lane Recreation Area hosts our summer aquatic programs in our 6,200 sq. foot pool, with a “kiddie” end, competition pool and diving area with a one meter (1M) diving board and a 9’ water slide which offers public swim times from late June through Labor Day. Gurney Lane Pool is staffed with local certified lifeguards, generally trained through the department’s variety of American Red Cross training courses. The department also provides NYS Boater Safety instruction for youth ages 10-17 years old throughout the year to help provide safe boating practices on our nearby lakes and waterways.
