Organized Activities

The City has 73 park areas including playgrounds and picnic shelters that provide places for people to relax, picnic, play, walk, rollerblade or swim. While these parks are available to the community, organized activities must have a permit to use the park areas. Permits may be applied for at the Arts, Culture, Recreation and Leisure Services office located on the 2nd floor of City Hall. The permit ensures that no two groups plan to use a facility at the same time.

The use of park areas is governed under the Parks Bylaw. Use of alcohol in park areas is prohibited. Licenced events are allowed in designated areas and must be permitted under the rules and conditions of the Municipal Alcohol Policy.

The user fees charged by the Arts, Culture, Recreation and Leisure Services Department for the use of Facilities shall be as follows (HST to be added to all fees listed below with the exception of the Key Deposit Fee)
