Free ABQ Swim Passes Summer 2012

Free swim passes for 2012 are available for kids and youth from Memorial Day weekend through the summer.

The Albuquerque free swim passes are available for youngsters aged 17 and under, courtesy of the Ditch & Water Safety Task Force. The freebie is part of their program to remind kids that it’s very dangerous to swim in ditches and arroyos, and to encourage them to enjoy themselves safely in swimming pools that were designed for the purpose!  

The swim passes are valid for one-day, one-time use, and may be used at all City of Albuquerque swimming pools and Bernalillo County pools until September 1, 2012.

The organizer tells me they have plenty to last through the 2012 season even if you don’t have chance to collect yours straight away, and they usually give out 80,000 – 100,000 free swim passes a year.  That’s a lot of splashy free fun!

The Ditches are Deadly website shows where you can pick up the free swim pass. At time of writing the sponsors and locations are not yet online, but usually include:

  • Albuquerque Police Department
  • Albuquerque Fire Department
  • Bernalillo County Fire Department
  • Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Department

See all the info on the free summer swim passes with links to sponsor locations to collect yours.

Please swim safely and enjoy your local pools this summer!
