One of the well-known treasures in the city of Kent is the beautiful public park at Lake Meridian. The park offers plenty of things to do, including boating, fishing, hiking, picnicking and of course swimming in the lake. Lake Meridian in Kent provides trained lifeguards on duty at the designated swimming area from mid-June through the month of September. This provides a safe place for you and your family to swim throughout the warm summer months.
Even though lifeguards are on-duty every day from 11am to 7pm during these months, the Red Cross offers several tips for staying safe while swimming.
- Apply waterproof suntan lotion with at least a SPF factor of 15.
- Limit your exposure to the sun by taking frequent breaks in the shade.
- Drink plenty of water throughout the day to stay hydrated.
- Always supervise young children in the water even if a lifeguard is on duty.
