Safety City

The Parks and Recreation Department works in conjunction with the Safety City Board to bring another avenue of youth activities to Longview.

The “city” simulates the real traffic environment of our community and includes an overpass and a railroad crossing. Working traffic lights and major traffic signs dictate the movement of pedestrians, bicycles and mini-cars operated by children. As you know, we are slowly bringing Safety City back! Please be patient as we schedule small events throughout the summer! If your questions are not answered below, please call our office at 903-237-1270
