An Update on Wading Pools, Spray Parks and Urban Green Spaces

Unfortunately, we will have to wait a little longer to dive into the fun, as these facilities won’t be opening this Father’s Day weekend as we had hoped. The City We’re working hard to ensure they meet all the necessary conditions once the restrictions are lifted. In the meantime, you can stay updated by checking our website at

Urban Forestry is leading by example in water conservation. They have been using non-potable water for 500 newly planted trees and will continue to use it for additional trees and seedlings. Look out for signage and decals on watering trucks indicating non-potable water use. 

While water restrictions are in place, annual flowers will not be watered, except for the Reader Rock Garden and floral displays for veterans in the fields of honour within City's cemeteries. These exceptions are also using non-potable water. 

City crews and contractors use non-potable water to protect golf course greens and tee boxes, allowing City golf courses to stay open for Calgarians to enjoy. In regular operations, all five City golf course greens are irrigated with non-potable water sources, but this is put on hold while the Stage Four Outdoor Watering Restrictions are in effect.
