The Neshaminy Community Aquatics program has been in existence since the early 1960s. It was the creation of the late Mr. Dick Ridings a Health  and Physical Education teacher at Carl Sandburg for many years. It was Mr. Ridings' belief that our swimming pool classrooms  were built and  maintained by the community and that the community should be able to use them when the school day is finished. It has been under the direction of Dan Gallagher since the mid 1980s and  we still maintain that belief  today.  

The program is totally self funded- no taxpayer money is used to maintain it. All salaries, fees and  equipment purchases are generated through the fees collected. We do have an excellent working agreement with the Health and PE staff at both pools in order to enhance the program and avoid duplication of resources.

The Community Aquatics largest contribution to the district  is in the area of teaching swimming and water safety for our children. We teach about 1400 students per year how to swim. . We do offer adult swimming, a water aerobics program, family swims, swim teams, lifeguard instruction and many other  aquatics experiences . We operate 6 days per week so our Neshaminy pool/classrooms are being used by our community from the minute school is out until about 10:00 PM every evening - plus half a day on Saturday. An effort is made to keep fees at a minimum.

The program is aided  by an excellent team of Neshaminy School District maintenance workers who work hard  to keep the pools properly heated, sanitary, and  ever ready to receive the  public. We thank the Neshaminy community for its support and we  sincerely hope  you and your family  can find the time to join us in one of our programs.
