We Are All Responsible

There are guidelines, protocols and procedures for design, staffing, chlorine levesl, and many other safety measures. When it comes to your child's safety, it ultimately falls to parents and caregivers to keep their children safe.

  • Keep an eye on your kids to make sure they are safe; there is no substitution for supervision.
  • No running, rough-housing, or jumping in the splash pad and pool areas.
  • Bring lots of water to drink. Active kids need a lot of water on a hot day.
  • Have your kids use the bathroom frequently and change soiled diapers immediately to cut down on the risk of contamination.
  • Use a chemical free sunscreen and re-apply often.
  • Shower before entering and after exiting the water to wash off any bacteria.
  • Keep children away from pool drains, pipes, and other openings to avoid entrapments.

If you notice defects with the pool or splash parks notify your maintenance team as soon as possible to have the issue resolved.
