Splash Pads and Wading Pool access

Restrict outdoor activity

Residents are encouraged to restrict outdoor activity. It is also recommended the public stay out of the sun, drink lots of water and stay in air-conditioned places or shaded areas.

Individuals at risk

Seniors and young children are particularly at risk and residents are encouraged to check in on friends and family who they think may be vulnerable.


Keep your pets indoors and only take them for short walks during times the heat is not at peak. If outdoors, limit time in the sun and provide shade. Also consider that if the pavement is too hot for bare feet, it is too hot for bare paws. Provide plenty of fresh water and keep air circulating indoors in hot temperatures, never leave children or pets unattended in vehicles.

Be safe in the water

  • Always keep young children within arms’ reach around the water.
  • Never swim alone.
  • Restrict and control access to backyard pools with fencing on all four sides.
  • Put a life jacket on young children when in the pool area or at the beach.
  • Choose lifeguard-supervised beaches and pools for swimming.
  • Empty unattended wading pools and buckets of water if not in use.
  • If you have a pool or cottage, ensure family members learn lifesaving skills.
