Seating for the fireworks is located to the east of the rink on the opposite side from the fieldhouse. The fireworks will be let off in the rink, and it will be blocked off from the public for safety reasons, although access to the playground in this area will be available until shortly before the fireworks start.
There will be 3 accessible parking spots inside the park that will be available first come first served, and accessed through Kipling Court. Volunteers will be stationed at the park entrance to provide access through the barricade.
Access to the building including to accessible washrooms is via the main front doors which has a slight lip. Help may be required.

Waste Management – Working Towards Net Zero
We want to be environmentally-friendly, so there will be a recycling (blue) and a composting (green) bin available by the rink. 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 you can ask a volunteer for help if needed.
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
We’ll have free popcorn and bottled water at the main building. Popcorn bags go in composting and water bottles in recycling.
We encourage you to bring your own water bottles. Tap water is available in the park fieldhouse.
First Aid and Security
The First Aid Station is located at the fieldhouse building at the kitchen counter. 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 have a defibrillator on site.
Volunteers will be monitoring for any unwanted behaviours. If you need help or to report inappropriate behaviour, please come to the fieldhouse building.
The lost child station is also at the fieldhouse building.
