Keep Watch @ Public Pools


Prevent your child from drowning.

Lifeguards are not babysitters!

  • You are responsible for your children at all times.
  • Children under 10 years of age must be actively supervised by a person 16 years or older.
  • For 0-5 year olds and non-swimmers a parent or carer is in the water at all times within arms' reach of the child.
  • For 6-10 year olds constant active supervision is required.
  • For 11-14 year olds it is recommended that parents check up on their child by physically going to the point where they are in or around the water.
