Lifeguard Service at Riverside Park Begins
Kamloops, B.C. - Beginning Saturday, June 27 to Sunday, September 6, lifeguard service will be available at the Riverside Park beach from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm daily, weather permitting.
To promote a safe river swim experience, when the "Lifeguard on Duty" sign is displayed, the City recommends swimming within the designated swim area and to keep within arm's reach of young children.
Lifeguard training will be held on June 26 at Riverside Park from 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm. For more information about the training please call 250-828-3754.
For your information, an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) unit is located in the Riverside Lifeguard office and will be available during lifeguard on-duty hours. In the event of a medical emergency, call 911 and immediately alert the lifeguards.
