Park rules

You must follow the rules at Leanyer Recreation Park. These are:

  • pets, smoking and alcohol are not allowed in the park
  • parents and guardians must supervise their children at all times and be dressed ready to enter a pool
  • children under 10 years must be supervised by a person 16 years or older
  • a parent or guardian must be within arms' reach of children aged five years and under and weak swimmers or non-swimmers when they are in the water
  • children aged 6-10 years must be constantly supervised
  • children aged 11-14 years should be regularly checked on by parents going to where they are in or around the water
  • your child must be at least 110cm tall to ride on the water slides
  • pregnant women should not ride the water slides
  • lifeguards are on duty during pool and water playground opening hours.

Active supervision

Ensure that you actively supervise children and take full responsibility for their safety in the water.

Active supervision consists of four key elements:

  • be prepared - ensure you have everything you need before getting into the water, such as towels and dry clothes
  • be close - always be within arms' reach of your child
  • all of your attention - focus all of your attention on your child by getting into the pool and talking and playing with them
  • all of the time - you should never leave your child alone in the water or in the care of an older child, or assume that your responsibility diminishes due to the presence of lifeguards.
