Be safe in the water

Residents are reminded to play it safe near water.

Always keep young children within arms’ reach around the water, never swim alone, and restrict access to backyard pools with fencing on all four sides.

Young children should wear life jackets when in the pool area or at the beach, and consider choosing lifeguard-supervised beaches and pools for swimming.

Empty unattended wading pools and buckets of water if not in use, and if you have a pool or cottage, ensure family members learn lifesaving skills.

Splash pads

This year the splash pads will be operating at 13 locations across the city with operating hours from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day, weather permitting.

Here are the locations of Brampton’s splash pads:
