Summer is upon us and that means it is time for lots of great outdoor activities! Whether that means trips to soak up the sun at the beach, finding ways to jump in the mud and go for a run, or even simply taking the dog for a walk, here are some ways to get up and out of the house.

Dive into Free Swim Lessons
With forecasts for warm weather and clear skies, jumping into the Pacific Ocean during a trip to the beach often sounds like a refreshing way to pass the day. However, a casual trip to the beach can be a scary one without knowing proper water safety skills. That is why San Diego is bringing back the “Portable Pool” program out and about at 5 recreation centers this summer to help teach free swimming lessons to children ages 3 through 15.
Inaugural lessons have already begun at the City Height Recreation Center, starting Monday, June 17th, and will continue throughout the summer in other areas, including recreation centers in Paradise Hills, Linda Vista, and Ocean Beach. These free, week-long classes are designed to introduce basic swimming lessons and pool safety skills to each class of 6 to 10 children in order to equip them with the knowledge of how to stay safe in the water this summer.
In order to participate, parents must fill out and submit ActiveNet forms to their desired “Portable Pool” location.
Make a splash on June 29th from 10 am to 1:30 pm at this year’s San Diego Mud Day! Join the community at Crown Point Park (map) in what is sure to be a day of fun splashing, running, and sliding through muddy obstacle courses, building nature crafts and forts, and jumping into Dr. Bronner’s Magic Foam Experience.
This free, family-friendly event is open to all, though make sure you RSVP before tickets run out! You can grab your tickets for Mud Day by following this link. Closed-toed shoes, towels, and changes of clothes are recommended by event organizers.
Moving Forward with Fido
For those looking for more places to enjoy the great outdoors with our canine companions, great news! As reported by David Schwab with SDNews.com, the San Diego City Council unanimously voted in approval of dog-friendly options in the redevelopment of Fiesta Island.
Previous testimony called for Fiesta Island to be bisected with a paved road to increase accessibility for non-motorized boaters to the shoreline. However, the proposed redevelopment will instead include an expanded fenced off-leash area for our furry friends to practice their best zoomies.
For more information about this decision, including testimony and a detailed map of the Fiesta Island redevelopment concept plan, please follow this link.
