Sensory Friendly Swim – July 23
Come and join us at the New Aquatic Center for some sensory-friendly fun! Sensory Friendly Swim is a time for children with special needs and their families to visit the pool and have a lower-intensity experience, while still having a lot of fun. Normal recreation swim is a very busy time that has a good deal of stimulation, such as spray play use, music playing, children screaming, etc. This may overwhelm a guest with sensory processing disorders.
During Sensory Friendly Swim, aquatics staff will keep the noise down by turning off music and the spray play features to help our friends with special needs and their families enjoy recreational swimming. Pools provide an awesome experience for those that have sensory processing issues, as they can provide full-body pressure, a quiet experience (underwater) and a place to have fun while doing so. For further information, please call (916) 526-0234.
Children must be accompanied by a parent/guardian or caretaker
