Survey Results

Public Opinion Strategies recently completed a survey to gauge District residents’ support for potential ballot measures to expand recreational facilities and continue to ensure a quality recreation experience for residents of all ages. The survey results show that while people favor the idea of improving Buchanan Park Recreation Center, there is a mixed reaction to paying taxes to fund it. Read the survey results.

Water Safety MonthStay Safe in and Around Water!

May is National Water Safety Month, and with the summer season rapidly approaching, Evergreen Park & Recreation District (EPRD) would like to share aquatic safety information to help you and your family to stay safe in and around the water.

Boating Safety Tips
   •   Let others know where and when you are boating.
   •   Learn and obey all posted rules and regulations.
   •   Wear U.S. Coast Guard-approved life jackets.
   •   Size life jackets according to body weight.
   •   Don't just pack it, wear your jacket.
   •   Never leave a capsized watercraft, as it is the best flotation device.
   •   Always wear sun protection.
   •   Never consume alcohol or drugs when boating.

Pool Safety Tips
   •   Never swim alone. Always swim with a buddy.
   •   Learn and obey all posted rules. Obey the lifeguards.

Water Safety Resources
EPRD offers a number of ways to keep your family safe around water, including swimming lessons for all ages and levels, water fitness classes, two youth swim teams and a Masters Swimming Program for adults. The District will also be getting kids involved in water safety activities during May at the swimming pools at Wulf and Buchanan Rec Centers by giving out activity sheets and temporary tattoos and having them sign Safe Swimmer Pledges.
