Point Mallard Park Issues Important Tips for a
Safe and Healthy Waterpark Experience
Decatur, Ala. (May 19, 2017 ) Summer is almost here and the J. Gilmer Blackburn Point Mallard Aquatic Center is ready to start its 47th season of operation. To provide for a safe and healthy waterpark experience for all guests and make this the best season yet, the park offers these important recommendations for our guests this summer. Point Mallard endorses the following CDC recommendations:
- Don’t swim or let your kids swim if sick with diarrhea.
- If diarrhea is caused by crypto, wait until two weeks after diarrhea has stopped to go swimming.
- Don’t swallow the water in which you swim.
- Rinse off in the shower before getting in the water to help remove any germs on your body that could contaminate the water.
- Take kids on bathroom breaks often, and check diapers in a diaper-changing area and not right next to the pool.
Guests are also reminded that hydration during the summer months is very important and to stay hydrated during your stay at the park. Please use sunscreen and dress appropriately for a day in the sun.
Point Mallard Park seeks your partnership in regards to these recommendations to make this a safe and happy season for all guests. Thank you so much to our guests for many years of fun in the sun. We can’t wait to kick off a new season on Memorial Day weekend, Saturday, May 27 at 10am. For more information please contact Point Mallard Park at 256-341-4900 or www.pointmallardpark.com
