The City of Lakewood seasonally staffs lifeguards; from July 4th weekend through Labor Day from noon-8pm daily, at both Harry Todd and American Lake Parks. All lifeguards are certified with both their lifeguard and water safety instructor certifications. They are there for your safety and require your cooperation for a safe swimming environment. Please remember that lifeguards are not a substitute for parental supervision.
