Eagle Eye Park Watch Program
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.
On the back cover, we have provided the proper contact information for you to report any broken equipment, vandalized facilities or suspicious activities. And, please remember, DO NOT take matters into your own hands!

Seemore 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.
