Answer: Children will be asked to take a swim test if they want to go into the deep end. If they pass the test, the lifeguards will record the child's name and they will be allowed in the deep end, which has one waterslide!
Answer: Swimmers must ask a lifeguard prior to using the waterslide. The guards are responsible for determining when it is safe for people to use the waterslides. For example, waterslides may not be used when there is only one guard on duty.
