Waste Management – Working Towards Net Zero

  • We want to be environmentally-friendly, so there will be recycling (blue) and composting (green) bins available in select locations in the park. Please help us get as close as possible to a zero waste event by using these bins and ensuring that you deposit your waste items in the correct bins. Signs will be posted, and some locations will have volunteers to help you make the right choice.
  • Volunteers will be sorting the bins after the event as we will be charged a processing fee if any of the bins are contaminated. Please make our job easy by choosing the right bin!
  • Please note that dog waste is not permitted in City garbage bins. Please pick up your dog poop and bring it home for disposal.

Food and Hydration

  • Tables and chairs will be set up in the fieldhouse for dining.   
  • We are serving pancakes from A&W. Your choice of drink will include coffee, a juice box or a bottle of water. Please remember to put your juice box in the recycling bins and its straw in the garbage bins.
  • We encourage you to bring your own water bottles. Tap water is available in the park fieldhouse.  
  • Visitors can also dine at one of the few outdoor picnic tables.

First Aid and Security

  • The First Aid Station is located at the fieldhouse building. A first aid kit is available for minor injuries and a volunteer with First Aid certification is available on site. Please ask a volunteer to call the First Aid responder if you need help. For a serious injury, please call 911 immediately. We do not have a defibrillator on site.
