In the Great Lakes state, the ability to swim is essential for anyone who wishes to enjoy the natural resources our beautiful state has to offer. Kent City has a long history of teaching children the enjoyment that comes along with swimming dating back to swim lessons at Half Moon Lake. Then, in 1975, Kent City built a brand new high school that included a pool, which to this day, remains the only public pool in the area. Over the years, thousands of children have learned to swim at the Kent City Pool. We are carrying on with this service to our community offering swim lessons for a wide-spectrum of ages from infants to adults.
