All City and School Playgrounds Closed
Mar. 23, 2020
The Calgary Emergency Management Agency announced today that effective immediately, the city is closing all playgrounds - including school playgrounds - in an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
The city's parks, however, will remain open. Parks offer open spaces, making it easier to maintain the six-foot distance from others.
