Map of Closed Playground Facilities
[Last update: June 24]

Although there have been many changes in the region with the recent wildfire event, we are committed to restoring our community and the outdoor recreation infrastructure you rely on.

The statuses of many outdoor recreation facilities are listed below. You can also download a map of closed playground facilities.

The facilities listed as open have been cleaned and inspected to meet CSA (formerly Canadian Standards Association) standards. It is our typical practice to ensure all parks and playgrounds meet these standards.

Closed Facilities

Any outdoor recreation facility that is deemed unsafe or is located in a restricted area is closed to the public and will remain closed and surrounded by fencing until further notice.

Please follow the Municipality on social media for further updates.

Parks and Trails – Status Updates

As part of the recovery process, a post-fire wildfire hazard assessment has been completed in unburned areas on municipal and provincial owned lands. For enhanced safety, the Municipality is doing FireSmart vegetation management in a number of areas. The Birchwood Trails are expected to be closed until further notice

Crews have blocked access to the perimeter trails from the neighbourhood connectors. Residents are advised to observe all barricades and temporary signage. To ensure your safety, residents are asked to avoid areas where work is ongoing.

Please check back here for further updates.
