The Spring Lake Park Swim Facility is now open for regular business hours, weekdays 12:00 to 6:00 p.m. and weekends 12:00 to 7:00 p.m.
In addition to the 18 lifeguards and other attendants who are on duty when the facility is open, additional actions are being taken. These include:
• The professional advised capacity is 1,200 guests; however, capacity will be limited on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (June 8, 9 and 10). Future capacity will be increased based on feedback from lifeguards, other staff members and the community. • Two additional lifeguards will be added to each shift.
• A “safety monitor” will be added to the staff to resolve “on-deck” issues and help ensure lifeguards are focused on monitoring swimmers in the water.
• Additional signage will be posted at the facility reinforcing the pool’s guidelines, including that children must be accompanied by an adult.
• Increased enforcement and one-strike policies for problem groups and individuals will be implemented. There are a few groups of children, including some children with parents, who cause problems and may at times be distracting lifeguards. In the abundance of caution, staff will implement a one-strike policy before groups or individuals are removed from the facility.
