Splash pads provide fun for kids, relief from summer heat

Ready, set, go! The province has given the green light to allow the City of Markham to reopen some outdoor amenities and have new guidelines and safety measures for how they are used.

Markham’s splash pads offer a great way to cool down during hot summer days. Pads are located at various locations throughout Markham. To conserve water, the splash pads are activated by push buttons on site and are on timers.

To comply with provincial guidelines, residents are reminded to wait their turn as needed as no more than 10 people can use the splash pads at one time. Physical distancing is required and people should limit their play time when others are waiting.

The following splash pads are now open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily.
