Toddler Splash April 3rd
Looking for something fun to do with your toddler or young child? Come to the Indoor Aquatic Center, located at 166 Cunningham Lane, the first Wednesday of every month for “Toddler Splash”. Kids ages 1 to 5-years-old can shake those winter blues away with April’s “Flowers and Bugs” theme by enjoying water games, springtime crafts, and a “fishing pond.”
The event is open to children ages 1-5 from 10:00am to 2:00pm. Cost to attend is $3.00 per person, including adults. A parent or adult guardian must accompany toddlers in the water.
This event will allow youngsters to enjoy getting acquainted with the water or practicing previously learned water safety skills. Pre-registration is available at recpro.cityofclarksville.com and is encouraged.
