Indy Parks and Recreation is committed to providing safe, clean and well-maintained facilities for your enjoyment. In addition to Park Ranger patrols, there are several steps Indy Parks has taken towards providing a safe and positive recreation and/or leisure experience:
All Indy Parks staff, and volunteers working directly with children in Indy Parks programs, must undergo an extensive background check process, prior to employment or service.
Indy Parks’ lifeguards are trained using the Starfish Aquatics Institute training program. This is one of the leading aquatic risk management companies involved in lifeguard training and standard of care. Lifeguard training includes certification for Adult, Child and Infant CPR, and includes Lifeguard First Responder first aid skills. Lifeguards are subject to unannounced reviews throughout the season by SAI national staff and city aquatic reviewers to ensure compliance and safety with industry safety standards.
