Community Playgrounds

The City of St. Albert is well-known for its green and spacious parks, as well as its many quality playgrounds.

Play Structure

Use is discouraged as outdoor amenities are not sanitized. Do not use equipment that is marked closed.

To ensure alignment with the provincial public health measures: 

  • Playgrounds can be used by individuals or by groups of 10 or fewer people
  • Please maintain a physical distance of at least two metres for all users
  • If the playground is too crowded to keep a physical distance of two metres from others, come back at another time. 

Please ensure you follow the rules for everyone’s safety or you may be subject to a provincial fine starting at $1,000. 

Outdoor Ice Surface Safety

Many community playgrounds are located near rivers, lakes, ponds and stormwater management facilities (SWMF). The City of St. Albert cautions everyone to stay off these ice surfaces in the winter as they are unpredictable and not safe for any type of recreational activity.

Special care should be taken around SWMF, which can be mistaken for a pond. They are man-made, and the primary function is to collect stormwater in neighbourhoods, remove sediment, and reduce flooding of streets and yards during heavy rainfall or spring run-off.
