Eagle Eye Park Watch Program

Eagle-Eye-4-color

The Eagle Eye SM Neighborhood Park Watch Program is an effort to prevent crime and vandalism to our playground and park equipment, to alleviate suspicious activities in our parks, and to promote community involvement.

In order for this program to be most effective, it must rely on citizen participation and support. While we do our best to keep a close watch on activities taking place in the parks, we cannot be everywhere all the time. Therefore, we are asking you (residents of our community) to helps us keep an Eagle EyeSM on our parks.

SeeMore the EagleSeemore the Eagle

Seemore the Eagle is the mascot who represents the Eagle EyeSM Neighborhood Park Watch Program.

With Seemore’s assistance, children are taught about the importance of proper behavior in our parks and how to take care of park property and equipment.

Seemore’s “Eagle Eyes”

Seemore visits schools and recreation sites to encourage children to be observant and responsible park patrons, and to tell their parents if they witness wrongful activities.

With Seemore’s help, children learn to “see” the value of parks, recreation facilities and programs in their lives. They learn our parks are worthy of preserving and protecting as safe places to enjoy and fun places to play.

Eagle EyeSM Neighborhood Park Watchers are encouraged to watch for all incidents of vandalism, unruliness, and other obvious wrongful activities, including:
• Defacement of park equipment
• Misuse of playground equipment
• Broken and unsafe equipment
• Alcohol or substance abuse in the park
• Unauthorized fires
• Fighting or harassment
• Destruction of natural resources
• Abuse or capture of wildlife
• Loose domestic animals in the park
• Littering or garbage dumping
• Violation of park closing hours
