Riverside Park beach set to reopen
As the river levels continue to recede, the City of Kamloops will reopen the Riverside Park swimming area and begin lifeguard service on Saturday, July 28.
Lifeguard service is available at the Riverside Park Beach from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. every day, weather and conditions permitting, through Sept. 2.
When lifeguards are on duty, the city recommends that swimmers stay within the buoy lines and always keep young children within arm's reach.
The city urges parents and guardians to closely supervise children with inflatable toys as they can blow away from shore and children will often follow them to deeper water.
For the public's information, an automated external defibrillator unit is located in the Riverside Park lifeguard office and will be available during lifeguard on-duty hours. In the event of a medical emergency, call 911 and immediately alert the lifeguards
