Aquatic Supervision

Parents Supervise, Lifeguards Save Lives

Your safety is very important to us and while there are lifeguards on hand, we ask you to follow these steps to help ensure your safety in and around our aquatic areas.

Watch Around Water

Here at Wulanda Recreation and Convention Centre we are a Watch Around Water facility. This program was developed to educate the public about adequate supervision and encourage parent/guardians to take on this responsibility when visiting a public aquatic facility.

‚ÄčTherefore, the following safe supervision policies must be adhered to:

Children 0-4 years old 

  • Will be issued a pink wristband from reception upon entry.
  • Children under 5 years old must be constantly supervised by a parent/guardian.
  • Adequate supervision requires the parent/guardian to accompany the child in the water and remain within arm's reach of the child at all times.
  • Maximum ratio: 1 Adult to 2 Children aged 0-4 years.

Children 5-9 years old

  • Will be issued a yellow wristband from reception upon entry.
