COVID-19 Response: Parks, Playgrounds and Dog Parks

Effective March 25, City-owned playground structures will close until further notice. This action was necessary because the shared surfaces people touch - especially playground equipment - should not be used right now for the health and safety of you and your family.

As we recognize the importance of getting fresh air and exercise each day, spaces including trails, dog parks and public squares remain open. Visitors must maintain a safe, two-metre (six feet) distance away from others using outdoor spaces. Consider outings by yourself or with just one other person at the appropriate distance. Sports fields should not be used for organized sports or play, and do not play any games, sports and activities, like soccer and shinny hockey, that put you in close contact with others. Visit for the latest information.
