Q: What does the snowflake icon represent?

A:  Snowflake Icon The Winter Activity icon indicates that there may be additional resources based on weather conditions or community needs. The snowflake icon represents the resources that can change in location or timing each season. For example, if you see a community rink one season, it may move to another location the following season based on weather or community needs. 

Q: Why isn’t MacDonald Island Park, YMCA, or any of the golf courses listed on the maps?

A: These maps list municipally owned and operated resources only, and do not list private, or other external resources.



All Winter Maintenance Zones are relaxed until further notice.
