City of Saskatoon Programs

Summer Playground Programs for Children and Youth

Children Under 6 Years:  To help children stay safe in and around the water, the City requires that all participants comply with the following policy:
“For every 2 children under the age of 6, there must be one adult or responsible youth (12 years or older) within arm’s length, supervising the children’s water play and activity.”
 The best life preserver for your child is YOU!
Infants and toddlers participating in water play must wear an appropriate swim diaper.
