Effective immediately, all playgrounds in Calgary are not to be used. This includes the playgrounds at City parks and all community associations. This is to reduce the spread of COVID-19 via playground equipment surfaces. Signs will be posted by Calgary Parks in the next day or so, along with yellow caution tape. For the time being skateparks will remain open however social distancing and capacity guidelines should be followed.
We still encourage people to go outside if they are able (ie: not in isolation). In doing so please continue to follow the social distancing guidelines. Either go alone or stay with direct household members. Respect the social distancing of others. But still enjoy fresh air and outdoor sun if possible.
There are numerous neighbourhood scavenger hunts going on across the city. These social distancing outdoor activities can still happen, again with respect to the points made above.
