The City has decided to close playgrounds. 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 like the above 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.

On the flip side, this does not mean everyone should avoid going outside. The City still encourages 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.
