With children across the city returning to school, Council made an important change to improve pedestrian safety on roads near schools and playgrounds. As of September 1, 2014, school and playground zone hours are harmonized to one consistent time. Please slow down to 30km/h during these times:
Playground zones are in effect from 7:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., all year around.
School zones are in effect from 7:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., on school days only.
There are 180 school zones and 1510 playground zones in the city. Crews have been busy all month changing the times on almost 5,000 signs around Calgary. Please use extra caution when driving in a school or playground zones.
