Drop-in fire pits at regional parks
Our regional parks are larger than community parks and have more amenities, like washrooms and parking lots. Our many in-ground fire pits are free to use 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. weekdays and weekends, but priority will be given to those who book the fire pits with a permit.
Use of our fire pits is subject to any fire bans.
Before you visit
- Bring enough wood to burn for your booking
- Have a fire safety plan
- Pick one person to be in charge of the fire
- Have a way to quickly put out the fire if needed
- Bring a first aid kit just in case
- Bring water to put out the fire (there may not be enough snow on site)
Fire pit locations
You can use our fire pits between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. weekdays and weekends. Bookable times are 12-3 p.m., 4-6 p.m. and 7-9 p.m.
Note: Some of our fire pits may be snow covered and not easily visible. City crews are attempting to dig them out for public use.
