When the big kids go back to school, the toddlers will play! Toddler Time returns to the Kingsport Aquatic Center this August, a special time where the KAC invites toddlers ages 2-5 and their parents to the outdoor play area for some quieter quality time in the water.

Visit the KAC on Tuesdays and Thursdays starting August 10 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. for play time in the outdoor leisure pool area. Toddler Time is $3 per non-member, free for toddlers 2 and under, and free for KAC and YMCA members.

Please note only the outdoor leisure pool will be open for Toddler Time, and non-members who wish to stay for open swim will need to pay daily admission. Toddler Times is weather dependent and runs through Thursday, September 16.
