City of Toronto to keep splash pads open until Monday

To help residents cool down in the unseasonably warm temperatures this weekend, the City of Toronto will be keeping the majority of its 93 splash pads open through to Monday, September 25. 

“I’d like to thank City staff who worked quickly to ensure that as many splash pads as possible could stay open this weekend to take advantage of the great weather,” said Mayor John Tory. “This is a fantastic way to keep soaking up the summer and I’m glad we’re able to give residents a chance to continue to enjoy most of the City’s splash pads.”

Some splash pads have already been closed for the winter as part of normal operations. The City will delay further closure activity until Monday, and the majority will remain open for the weekend. Some splash pads have had their electrical timers shut off, and staff will reset timers Friday morning to ensure they are functioning for the weekend. Residents can visit to see which splash pads will remain open this weekend. 

Splash pads operate daily from 9 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. and are activated through push-button features. Caregivers are reminded to supervise their children at these unsupervised water play areas.
