  • While parks are cleaned and maintained on a regular basis, we encourage users to remember, the best way to reduce the risk of getting sick and to avoid COVID-19:
    • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
    • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
    • Stay home when you are sick.
    • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
    • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

Swimming Lessons Save Lives

MakingWavesLogo2The "Making Waves" scholarship program provides discounted Summer learn-to-swim lessons and discounted competitive team membership to Mesa residents in need, all made possible by donations from the community

Mission
The mission of the Making Waves program is to play a key role in the reduction of child drowning incidents in Mesa through water safety education and teaching disadvantaged children how to swim.

To Register:
Participants may only register for one session at a time and all registration is done on-site the Saturday before a session begins.  When registering, parents need to provide proof that they are Mesa residents and their child is on the Free (not reduced) Lunch Program, or they receive Federal Cash Assistance.  Scholarships are limited, and are on a first come first serve basis.  To provide scholarships to as many people as possible a cap has been placed on the number of scholarships one family may receive.
