Katie Yandell, Aquatics and Specialty Programs Coordinator
Safety City is a unique kid-sized town where school age children learn hands-on the rules of pedestrian, bicycle and traffic safety. More than 10,000 kids go through the program each year.
Safety City has expanded its program to include seat belt education and hosting on-site Safety Fairs that attract area hospitals and safety organizations. But we offer much more through our special programs and services. Come join us!
Safety City is operated by the City of Lubbock Parks and Recreation Department.
Field Trips and Tours
Groups interested in a future safety class can tour the facility by contacting Safety City and scheduling an appointment. Children learn about car, bike and pedestrian safety according to age. Great for scout troops and church groups!
