In 2017, the Grand Junction Parks and Recreation Department received four unannounced Operational Safety Audits from Jeff Ellis & Associates, the division’s aquatic risk management company. Throughout those audits, aquatics staff consistently exceeded the standard criteria for aquatic safety certification. This resulted in Grand Junction Parks and Recreation receiving the prestigious “Gold International Aquatic Safety Award.”
This award recognizes professionalism, accountability, and commitment to safety in our facilities, and is only awarded to client facilities scoring in the top 30 percent of audit criteria. This is the fifth consecutive year that Grand Junction Parks and Recreation has received this award from Ellis & Associates, and the seventh Gold or higher award since 1998.
