The city requires playground users to follow provincial health orders and warns the playgrounds are not sanitized.

The province has released the following guidelines:

  • People not from the same household or extended household should maintain two metres of physical distancing at all times. Limit gathering with other people when entering and leaving the park/playground and supervising children playing.

  • Group sizes must comply with the public gathering restrictions.

  • Ensure frequent hand hygiene for everyone before, during and after outdoor play.

  • If an area is busy, such as playground equipment or park space, come back when it’s not as busy or use another play area.

  • Do not share toys or sports equipment between groups.

  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and warm water or, when unavailable, with hand sanitizer.

  • Refrain from touching your face.

  • Carry and use alcohol-based hand sanitizers approved by Health Canada before and after using playground and other recreational equipment.

  • Consider limiting children and other members of your household to only visiting playgrounds close to your home. This will help limit the number of people your family may come into contact with during the visit.

  • Mask use is not required, but non-medical masks are an additional measure you can take to protect people around you when physical distancing cannot be maintained or is unpredictable.
