Welcome
The Hartford Parks and Recreation Department is excited to offer you another summer
season of fun. Veterans Memorial Pool will
again be the place to go and cool off on a hot
summer day however you should know that
in will close early with July 31st being the
final swim day at that facility. That early closing allows for construction to start on the new
Veterans Memorial Aquatic Center that will
open in July of 2016. Don’t worry - we have
provided extra indoor summer swims for you
at the Signicast Family Aquatic Center in the
month of August.
Inside this guide are pages that acknowledge
those who have generously provided their
time and volunteered in the “Something for
Everyone Campaign”. Also listed inside are
those who have already pledged/donated to
this new aquatics facility. There is still time to
make a donation. If you are interested,
please contact the Recreation Office. My
personal thank you to everyone who has
supported this project. This is going to be a
great facility that will serve the Hartford
community for many years to come.
Have a great summer!

Swim Lessons
VETERANS MEMORIAL POOL OUTDOOR LESSONS – These lessons are held in the morning.
There will be four sessions in 2015, each meets Monday through Friday for two weeks. Complete
schedule can be found on page 6.
SIGNICAST FAMILY AQUATIC CENTER INDOOR LESSONS – This summer, we will continue to
conduct lessons at the Signicast Family Aquatic Center. There are three evening sessions, each
two days a week (Monday and Wednesday) for four weeks. There is also one morning session,
two days a week (Tuesday & Thursday). A complete schedule can be found to the right.
The “Learn to Swim” lesson program is conducted by the AMERICAN RED CROSS CERTIFIED
WATER SAFETY INSTRUCTORS and is designed to teach swimming skills and to promote and
develop a positive and safe atmosphere around water. Participants must furnish their own suit
and towel.
If you wish to register for more than one session, please register for the level the child is currently at. Most children require taking a level more than once in order to successfully complete
the requirements of the level. If your child does pass, and you have already enrolled them in that
level again, please call the office immediately so we can attempt to transfer the child to the next
level. If we are unable to move the child to the next level, you are welcome to re-take the class they
have passed or get a complete refund. It is easier to move a child ahead if they do pass, then
move them back if they do not, but it is not a guarantee.
Only the parent or legal guardian can register their children. Friends, neighbors, relatives or
childcare providers will not be allowed to register children other than their own.
Wading Pool Use – The wading pool at Veteran’s Pool is open from 9:00 AM to 1:15 PM for kids 5
and under if accompanied by an adult. Child is $.50, Adult is $1.00 during lesson time only. Any
other time is regular price – even if the adult plans to just use the wading pool.

ATTENTION PRE-SCHOOL PARENTS:
In order to assist us in offering a quality program for your pre-schooler, we ask
that you observe the following:
• Children must be the correct age of the program by the first day of class.
• Please do not remain at the class unless it is otherwise stated in the class
description. Experience has shown it is distracting for the pre-schoolers'
short attention span.
• Children enrolling in pre-school programs must be potty-trained.
Thank you for your cooperation.

General Information
• REGISTRATION POLICY
To register for a program, the Recreation
Office needs a registration form signed
by a parent (if program is for a minor) or
the adult participant. Friends, neighbors
or relatives can not register for others.
Payment with the completed registration
form is also needed. The Recreation Office can not accept credit card numbers
by phone - Master Card or Visa only.
Registrations can be mailed in, put in
the drop box outside the Recreation
Center’s front door, done in person during office hours, or faxed in.
• NON-RESIDENT FEES
The Hartford Parks and Recreation
Department operates by two primary financial sources - City property taxes
and program/facility fees. Taxes pay for
the majority of daily operations and
maintenance, yearly capital projects and
debts for large construction projects
such as the Recreation Center. City
Property Tax is paid whether or not an
individual participates or uses the facilities of the Department. The non-resident
fee concept is intended to apportion to
non-residents an equalized fee so that
they contribute to the overall financing of
the Parks and Recreation Department .
To clarify, a City Resident is a person
who pays City of Hartford Property
Taxes AND votes at the City Hall.
Annual non-resident passes can be purchased to cover the cost of the non-resident fee on programs. Passes do not
cover non-resident fees on memberships, daily fees or rentals. By
purchasing this pass, a non-resident
would pay the resident fee for programs.
See the E-Z Registration Page for pass
prices.
• CAN I WATCH?
Please do not remain in your child’s
class, unless otherwise approved by the
instructor. Experience has shown it is
distracting to the participants and
instructor. The final class may be observed by parents or other non-participants. If you wish to discuss your child’s
progress with the instructor, please let
the office staff know. They will have the
instructor contact you.

• Participant Cancels with less than 2
business days before program begins No Refund. If there is a medical reason, a pro-rated refund will be given.
Doctors excuse may be required.
• Participants Wishes to Change Class,
Day/Time - If there are openings in another class day/time of the same program, changes can be made with a
$5.00 transfer fee which will need to be
paid before the transfer can be made.
• Memberships- Memberships are nonrefundable.
• INSURANCE/LIABILITY
The Hartford Parks & Recreation Department does not provide hospital/medical
insurance coverage for people participating in sponsored activities and cannot assume responsibility for injury to any
participants in its recreation programs.
Participants are encouraged to obtain
their own insurance coverage prior to the
start of the program and to consult with a
physician before participating in any strenuous activity.
• WAITING TO REGISTER KILLS
PROGRAMS
The program’s description has a Register Before date. If the Depart-ment has
not reached the minimum enrollment by
that date, the program will be cancelled.
Please, don’t wait to register.
• TO ERR IS HUMAN
The Parks and Recreation Department
works hard to ensure each program
guide is free from errors. However, there
are times when errors or changes in
dates, times, rates or registration information do occur. We will do everything
possible to correct such errors and inform you of changes. We thank you for
your understanding when these situations arise.
• SAY CHEESE
Occasionally photographs will be taken
of participants and activities and may be
used for promotional purposes. If you do
not wish to have your photograph taken,
please convey this to the photographer
and/or instructor.
• MEDICAL INFORMATION
If there are any medical conditions the
instructor should be aware of, the participant or a parent of the participant
should talk to the instructor at the first
class.
• AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES/NON-DISCRIMINATION
The Hartford Parks & Recreation Department welcomes individuals and families from our community to participate
and enjoy programs and facilities regardless of race, national origin, ancestry, creed, martial or parental status,
age, religion, gender, national origin or
ability. If you have a disability and would
like information and support for accessibility of programs and facilities, please
