Toledo offering free swimming lessons Thursday

Three Toledo city pools will offer free swimming lessons on Thursday from 1-3 p.m. (WNWO).

If you've been looking to become a better swimmer, Thursday might be the perfect day to take a dip.

Toledo has joined the "World's Largest Swimming Lesson".

It's hosting free lessons for people to learn how to swim.

Last year, more than 40,000 kids participated.

"Swimming is a critical skill. It's a key safety issue. The mayor feels very strongly that children should learn how to swim to be safe," said City Spokesman Ignazio Messina.

The free event is at Jamie Farr, Pickford and Roosevelt pools from 1-3 p.m.

It's recommended you get there around noon because space is limited.
