Swimming Safety

The City of Surrey is committed to helping children swim safely

Drowning is the second leading cause of preventable death for children under 7. In Surrey, our goal is to make children comfortable in the water in a safe and fun environment. Through knowledge and experience, we can help ensure your children have a safe and enjoyable swim.

Swimming lessons can improve comfort in the water

Working in partnership with the Lifesaving Society of British Columbia. Surrey helps kids improve their comfort in the water. Swimming lessons provide skills for safety. Through our registered and drop-in lessons, our instructors can help. We also offer free swimming lessons at our indoor pools with the price of leisure swim admission all year round. Please register up to 30 minutes prior at the front desk.

Open water safety

Swimming in open water creates challenges unique to the outdoor setting. See information about our Crescent Beach swimming area for quick tips on outdoor water safety.
