What to Expect Upon Arrival
Staff will conduct a verbal health screening with each participant prior to program start. Staff will collect caregiver or participant contact information and for ParksPlayTO, the number of children they are accompanying. This information is being collected for Toronto Public Health in case of a COVID-19 outbreak.
Programs run in dry weather only. Please bring water and wear hats and sunscreen. Closed-toe, closed heel shoes are also recommended. Program locations do not always have washrooms. Participants are expected to use their home facilities in those instances. Program schedules are posted two weeks at a time so check back for more dates. Locations will change over the summer.
Programming is designed for participants to maintain physical distance from other individuals and groups. Equipment will be sanitized between uses, or individual supplies will be provided.
