The hours of operation at the city’s 14 spray parks have been extended from 9 a.m. until 10 p.m. Staff are currently in the process of adjusting the timers and the new hours should be in effect by the end of the day Wednesday. Most spray parks are typically open from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m.  

Misting stations have been set up at Andy Livingston, Emery Barnes, Oppenheimer and Thornton parks. And several community  centres throughout the city have been set up as cooling centres — including Britannia, Hillcrest, Kerrisdale, Mount Pleasant, Ray-Cam, Roundhouse and West End community centres.
