City's Splash Jam July 10
City's Summer Playground
July 9, 2009 - The City of Knoxville’s Parks and Recreation Department is holding a “Splash Jam” for the children who are participating in the City’s Summer Playground Program this year.

The event will be held at Ed Cothren Pool in Malcolm Martin Park (1737 Reynolds St.) on Friday, July 10, 2009 from 10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

Kids will participate in the water running race, traditional swim race, shallow water retrieval, underwater frogman, four-person swim relay, diving, cannonball, and diving retrieval events in a friendly competition. The recreation center that wins the most events will be declared the overall winners.

Children who attend City recreation centers in the Summer Playground Program have taken field trips to the City’s Ed Cothren and Inskip Pools to learn water safety and proper swimming techniques. This “Splash Jam” is a celebration of what the children have learned this summer.

For information on public swim lessons offered by the City of Knoxville Parks and Recreation Department, citizens can call 865-215-1406.
