Park Safety Tips

Important tips for you, your family and friends to have a safe, fun and enjoyable park experience.

Things you can do to keep you and your park safe

  • Be Aware of your surroundings – Be vigilant and aware of where you are and who is around you.
  • Call 911 in an emergency or if using a cell phone call (916) 732-0100.
  • Call the City operator 24/7 at 311 if you are within the City limits to report non-emergency concerns or issues. If outside the City limits, call (916) 264-5011.
  • Do not leave anything visible or valuable in you car, not even in your trunk.
  • Closely supervise your children as they play in the park.
  • Only use park equipment and/or facilities for the intended purpose.
  • On hot days, drink plenty of water.

Walking, Jogging and Biking

  • Own the path, project confidence and strength.
  • Do not wear headphones; they reduce your senses, especially persons approaching from behind. Being able to hear makes you aware of your surroundings.
  • Pedestrians should walk or jog facing oncoming traffic.
  • Go with a friend.
  • Wear proper safety equipment, bright clothing, helmet when biking, proper footwear, etc.
  • Obey all traffic laws and/or trail rules.
  • Trust your instincts. If it does not seem right, request help from others
  • To report emergencies call 911 or (916) 732-0100 from a cell phone. For non-emergencies, call (916) 264-5011.

Hazardous Activities (Swimming and Skating)

  • Skaters - Always wear your helmet and pads - It may prevent you from serious injury and "It's the Law!"

PARENTS - WHEN AROUND THE WATER WITH YOUR CHILDREN - REMEMBER THAT:

Kid's Don't Float"

"If They are Beyond Arms Reach- They Have Gone too Far"

Make sure they are wearing a PFD (Personal Flotation Device/Lifejacket) - If under 13, it's the Law.
