vi. Community Swim Time
What is Community Swim Time?
It is an agreement and partnership between the City of Fort Worth and the YMCA to allow city residents to swim at certain YMCA pools by paying a nominal fee without having a YMCA membership. The agreement was reached after the City of Fort Worth closed 6 city pools due to budget cuts.
