Keeping Safe at Klineline

          No Lifeguards or Spray Feature Summer 2011.

          Klineline Pond at Salmon Creek Park has long been a popular destination for summertime fun. With the addition of the play structure, spray feature and lifeguards, the popularity only increased.

          The good news is that Klineline will be open for the summer. The bad news is that the spray feature will be off, and the lifeguards absent.

          Here is an excerpt from a recent Clark County press release:

          “For a second year, the county will not provide lifeguards or operate the children’s “spray ground” water feature at Klineline Pond in Salmon Creek Regional Park, 1112 N.E. 117th St., Vancouver. Swimmers, parents and anyone else using the park should review water safety guidelines and pay attention to warning signs at Klineline Pond.

          “We were able to keep regional parks open this past winter and had hoped to reinstate lifeguards for the summer swimming season,” Vancouver-Clark Parks and Recreation Director Pete Mayer said. “But the ongoing economic slump and reduced revenues made that difficult, given other regional park maintenance and operations needs, countywide.””
