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 6,000 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!

After School Program
Safety City now offers an after-school program for kids ages 6-12 from September 25 through December 19, 2014, Monday-Friday from 3:30-5:30 p.m. daily. This program will provide children with an afternoon snack, activities and fun in a safe learning environment. This is the first year that Safety City has been able to offer this exciting new program, made possible by a grant from the National Recreation and Park Association and Wal-Mart to teach nutrition education during after school hours.  Limited spots are available, so register now by calling Katie Yandell or Ben Frietag at (806) 767-2712.

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!
