Fire prevention campaign coming to an Oakville splash pad near you


Published June 27, 2022 at 12:08 pm

Sparky’s Dog Days of Summer have arrived in Oakville.

The annual Sparky’s Dog Days of Summer campaign kicks off Wednesday, July 6 at Old Abbey Lane Park, located at 1110 Old Abbey Lane.

While kids take the opportunity to cool off from the hot weather, Oakville Fire crews will be paying a special visit to seven local splash pads throughout the summer.

The fire prevention initiative encourages residents to meet and talk to local firefighters at their neighbourhood park and gives the kids a chance to check out the fire trucks.

The Sparky’s Dog Days of Summer campaign provides parents with an opportunity to improve their awareness on fire safety as the crews share tips to keep children safe from burns and scalds, information about smoke and fire detection systems at home, and how to plan and practise home escape plans.

Parents and kids can also enjoy some Panago Pizza. Slices are $2 each and water or pop a $1 each with all proceeds going to Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides.


Sparky’s Dog Days will be held Wednesdays from 6 to 8 p.m. at the following parks:

  • July 6: Old Abbey Lane Park, 1110 Old Abbey Ln
  • July 13: Wynten Way Park, 2495 Wynten Way
  • July 20: Sixteen Hollow Park, 2140 Westoak Trails
  • July 27: Neyagawa Park, 540 River Glen Boulevard
  • August 3: Valleybrook Park, 1150 Valleybrook Drive
  • August 10: Fowley Park, 95 Fowley Drive
  • August 17: Valleyridge Park, 2524 Valleyridge Drive

In case of rain, the fire crews will visit the same park on the next day (6 to 8 p.m.).
