The City of Toronto, the David Cornfield Melanoma Fund and the Douglas Wright Foundation have expanded a public health program to provide free sunscreen in select City parks this summer.
The Health Canada-approved SPF 30 broad-spectrum sunscreen will be available at 50 dispensers located in City parks along the waterfront, spanning nearly 50 kilometres from Marie Curtis Park to Rouge Beach.
Crews provided by the melanoma foundations will maintain and stock the dispensers. The two foundations are covering all costs, with the City providing locations and administrative support. Last year’s pilot involved placing dispensers in five parks along the downtown waterfront. The pilot won the 2017 Canadian Dermatology Association Public Education Award.
You can find the dispenser site locations here by the end of June.
