GREENSBORO, N.C.-  One day after a man was arrested for indecent liberties at a local water park, parents are keeping a closer eye on their kids and what is going on around them.

Denise Vangourden has a 10-year-old daughter and Thursday was their first time to Wet N' Wild.

"It's a little nerve wracking, very concerning actually," said Vangourden. "You just never know when you have this large range of kids -- from 5 to 25 -- what's going on."

Tony Brancazio  the General Manager of Wet N' Wild said all lifeguards go through 40 hours of training and in this case the lifeguard did the right thing.

"Safety is the first priority for Wet N' Wild.  All the team members in the park are training to watch for any safety situation that might interfere with their job or the guest experience and then activate the safety protocols at the park," explained Brancazio.

According to Brancazio, Wet N' Wild has uniformed and undercover Guilford County Sheriff's deputies patrolling their park on a daily basis.
