Even though it’s cloudy, it’s still important to wear sunscreen.

Because kids are especially vulnerable to the sun’s harsh beams, it makes it even more important that we practice sun safety ☀️ Here is 5 sunscreen tips for kids from UNM Health and the City of Albuquerque.⬇️

A child can drown in as little as 2" of water. You can prevent a drowning this summer. Share with family and friends. ⬇️

Thank you to Albuquerque The Magazine and their readers for naming Los Altos Pool as the best public swimming pool in the city! 🏆🎉 We love the facelift it got, and we're glad you do, too. West Mesa Aquatic Center and the Sunport pool also made the Top 5 - none of this would be possible without the hard work of our aquatics staff!
Are ya open? I have been calling, scanning the web and your sites for weather delays and cancellations. Are you open for my morning swim or not? Announcing closures AFTER lap times kinda defeats the purpose of notifying people.
Think you've got what it takes to take the Al'burrr'querque Polar Bear Plunge?! Join us Saturday at 10 a.m. at the West Mesa Aquatic Center to help raise money for the Shanta Strong Swim Fund to pay for swim lessons for kids in need. #OneAlbuquerque Sign up here: https://www.active.com/albuquerque-nm/water-sports/swimming/al-burrr-querque-polar-bear-plunge-2020?fbclid=IwAR3zdZD2pbrDxRa7z-3y3nbqYVM73eITXwI88un4TAh3wWyhcynGv52tPYs&int
Join us Sunday at West Mesa Aquatic Center for a FREE CPR workshop to learn valuable information about this lifesaving skill. This is NOT a certification course, however, it's a great way to get your questions answered if you've been thinking about getting certified. And stay tuned as we will be offering certification courses in the coming months. #OneAlbuquerque
If the rising temperatures have you looking for a way to cool down, you're in luck! Four City outdoor pools are opening early this year. The West Mesa Aquatic Center outdoor pool opens Saturday, May 4 for weekend hours, followed by Eisenhower, Rio Grande, and Sierra Vista next Saturday (May 11) for weekend hours. All City pools will open for regular summer hours beginning Saturday, May 25.

I attend a swim meet this past Sunday and afterwards I lost one of my wheelchair wheels it's a spenergy wheel black in color with red spokes. If anyone saw it out in the parking lot or knows anything about the wheel please message me. Thanks
