Welcome to Friends of Forest Park, we are a 501c-3 non-profit organization founded in 2023 with a singular mission: to support and foster the growth of swimming and enhance the well-being of individuals of all ages through the transformative power of swimming.  We are accomplishing this mission by fundraising for our namesake team and pool located in central Concord, CA. We are proud to say that 100% of all donations go towards the pool, team, or both, based on the donor’s preference.

At Friends of Forest Park, we believe that swimming is more than just a sport – it’s a vital life skill, a form of exercise, and a source of joy, community, and camaraderie. Our journey began with a vision to enhance and grow our community through swim.

Established in 2023, Friends of Forest Park has quickly become a vital piece of the Forest Park family, thanks to the dedication of our founders, volunteers, and supporters. Through our fundraising efforts, we provide financial assistance to our swim club and team, ensuring that every aspiring swimmer has the opportunity to pursue their passion and reach their full potential, regardless of financial constraints.

Friends of Forest Park is proud to support a swimming pool that serves as a gathering place for swimmers of all levels. Our pool is not just a facility; it’s a place where friendships are forged, skills are honed, and memories are made. We offer a range of programs and activities, from swimming lessons for beginners to advanced training sessions for competitive swimmers, ensuring that there’s something for everyone.

Forest Park Swim Club and Flyers are more than just bricks, water, and a swim team – we’re a family. We are united by our shared love for swimming and our commitment to giving back to the community that supports us.

Join us as we continue to make waves, both in the pool and in the hearts of our community. Together, let’s dive into a brighter, healthier future, one stroke at a time at Forest Park.

Forest Park Swim Club has been serving Concord and the surrounding communities for over 50 years. Whether it’s swim lessons, water aerobics, lap swimming, children’s birthday parties, or families spending time splashing away summer afternoons, hundreds of people pass through its doors and rely on the central Concord pool to provide a safe and family-friendly recreational space.

Founded in the mid-1960s, the Forest Park Flyers swim team has been around for nearly as long as the pool! Swimmers on the team start learning to swim, an invaluable life skill, as young as four, and many remain on the team through high school. The team philosophy centers around learning swim techniques, teamwork, and self-improvement all while providing an encouraging learning atmosphere. The Flyers will continue to provide life-long memories for families for years to come.
