COVID-19 Health and Safety - Spray parks, wading pools and outdoor pools

Stay home and away from others

  • If you’re showing symptoms or feeling unwell
  • If you have travelled outside of Canada in the past 14 days
  • If you are a close contact of someone who has tested positive or are waiting for test results for COVID-19

How we're keeping you safe

  • Making sure our facilities align with provincial guidelines for Stage 2 reopening
  • Water runs continuously for spray park components so users do not need to touch the dials and buttons. Water is tested regularly
  • Circles have been painted in the grassy areas to highlight proper physical distancing
  • Staff maintain physical distancing and wear face coverings when possible
  • Be a good neighbour and share the fun with everyone; we’re limiting how many people can use the spray parks at one time, per AHS guidelines, so give everyone a turn to play

How you can keep safe

  • Parents - Make sure you and your child understand the COVID-19 guidelines
  • Maintain social distancing (2 metres or 6 feet apart if possible) no close contact huddles.
  • Masks may be worn by attendees on the deck of the spray park or wading pool. Guidance is available here.
  • Masks should not be worn while playing in spray parks and wading pools, as they present a safety risk
  • Bring and clean your own equipment such as towels, lifejackets/flotation aid and goggles Avoid sharing equipment unless you are in the same household or cohort.
  • Limit the use of pool toys to flotation aids only
  • Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds before, during and after your activity. Washrooms are available on site
  • Carry and use your own hand sanitizer (it is not available on site)
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, mouth and face
  • Cover coughs and sneezes in a tissue or your elbow
  • Don't gather or loiter in parking areas or public areas
