Get Into It! Parks Promotion This Summer

Get Into It Logo

Did you know that the City has over 3,000 hectares of open space, 138 playgrounds, four municipal parks, dozens of community and neighbourhood parks, 23 sports fields, 11 dog parks, eight skate parks, and more than 100 kilometres of walking trails to provide residents and visitors with the opportunity to relax and enjoy nature?

This summer, we're encouraging resident to get out and enjoy all our community and neighbourhood parks have to offer, from playgrounds and open space to sports fields and courts... all in your neighbourhood!

We're profiling one park a week for the entire summer and providing recreation ideas for you to "get into it!"

Join the social media community and share a selfie of you in a City Park this summer on the City's Twitter, Facebook or Instagram accounts @cityofstjohns, #CSJParks, to be entered to win our summer grand prize of a family outdoor activity kit, valued at approximately $300!
