 COVID-19 Response: Playground/Playstructures Closed Until Further Notice

Effective March 25, City-owned playground structures will close until further notice. This action was necessary because the shared surfaces people touch -especially playground equipment - should not be used right now for the health and safety of you and your family.

Summer Play Programs

FREE!  The City of Saskatoon operates 50 weekday and 16 weekend Play Programs at various playground locations throughout Saskatoon in July and August. 

Play Program leaders plan and supervise activities for children ages 2 to 12 years, while the adjoining Paddling Pools and Spray Pads offer kid-sized opportunity to cool off and beat the heat. Open rain or shine.

Refer to the  interactive mapping application or download the Leisure Guide's Where to Play location list for more information on Play Program locations, dates and hours of operation.

Hours of Operation (July 4 to Aug 25)







*Friday, August 25 - last day of operation will end at 3:00pm

Fill and drain times vary per paddling pool, check with staff on site to confirm available water times.

To maintain water quality, pool chemicals will be tested regularly.  During chemical additions participants will play outside the fenced area with a Play Program leader.

Preschool-Aged Children Policy

Children under the age of 6 must be supervised by an adult or responsible youth (12 years or older) at all times during Play Program hours. To help preschool age children stay safe in and around the water, the City requires that all participants comply with the following policy:

"For every 2 preschoolers under the age of 6, there must be one adult or responsible youth (12 years or older) within arm's length, supervising the preschoolers' water play and activity."
