Syracuse Parks and Recreation, the Thornden Park Association, and the University Neighborhood Preservation Association hosted our first Youth Aquathon for kids ages 5-15. Aquathons combine swimming and running into a fun sporting event. Over 50 kids participated in what will become an annual event.


Special thanks to the lifeguards that made each kid feel confident in the pool. Community members that helped volunteer, thank you for helping the event be successful. The staff at Parks & Recreation went above and beyond to help make one idea turn into a big splash!
