It's National Water Safety Month - Think Safety!
With summer fast approaching, it is time to communicate water safety rules to families and individuals of all ages. Whether your family summer planning includes water fun at public or private pools, our state’s beautiful lakes and rivers, or a visit to a beach this summer, NOW is the time to find swim lesson programs in your neighborhood and have important conversations about water safety.

At Water World, we have hired hundreds of lifeguards to be vigilant over our 50+ attractions, but that is not always the case in remote or private locations all around the state and anywhere people find water.

Three important things everyone can do to stay safer in and around water are:
Learn to swim - Adhere to all safety rules around water - Never-ever swim alone. 

These rules pertain to both adults and children.
Free Be-A-Fish Learn to Swim Program
The Hyland Hills Foundation is continuing its FREE Be-A-Fish Learn to Swim Program for elementary-aged Hyland Hills Residents and WPS students this summer! Since it’s inception, the program has provided more than 12,000 free swim lessons.

The lessons consist of a 2-week course of daily, half-hour swim lessons, administered by trained Water World lifeguards at Carroll Butts and Splashland pools. The classes will be given in June and July with various time options to choose from.

Upon completion of the 2-week program, your child will receive a congratulatory certificate of accomplishment. Please plan to take advantage of this opportunity to teach your children the basics of water safety and swimming, courtesy of the Hyland Hills Foundation. Space is limited, so sign up today by calling: 303.428.7488 or 720.656.4227

A Fond Farewell…Donal G. Waddell

Hyland Hills Park and Recreation District bids a heartfelt goodbye to former Board Member Donal G. Waddell who passed away recently.

Mr. Waddell was a Board Member from 1969 until he was term-limited in 2006. He was a strong, steady leader who was instrumental in the District’s early progress and the visionary expansion of noteworthy facilities in the District’s operational portfolio, including dozens of District parks, the Greg Mastriona Golf Courses at Hyland Hills, Water World, Adventure Golf & Raceway, Ice Centre at the Promenade, the Donald E. VanArsdale Gymnastics Center and more.

Mr. Waddell’s initial involvement in the District stemmed from his deep desire to address the need for baseball fields in the area. As an elected Board Member. he became more than instrumental in the development of the District’s impressive baseball/park facility located at Federal Boulevard and the Hwy-36 Boulder Turnpike. The park was appropriately named after Mr. Waddell as a tribute to his persistent commitment to the game of baseball and more Importantly, to the children of the Hyland Hills Park and Recreation District. He was inducted into the District’s Hall of Fame in 1996 where he will remain highly regarded in perpetuity and remembered as the “Rock of Hyland Hills.”

Condolences to Joan, Mr. Waddell’s lovely wife and his family who will always be a part of the Hyland Hills family.
