Water provides plenty of activities for all ages, but it's important to practice water safety, especially when living in a coastal community, such as St. Petersburg.

According to the Florida Department of Health, "Florida leads the country in drowning deaths of children ages 1-4 years."

Learning to swim is an important factor in practicing water safety.
