Playground Zones in Calgary

Michelle Mak Community, Daily Life, Newcomer Information

As children are going back to school, please remember to slow down to 30 km/h during designated playground zones from 7:30 AM – 9:00 PM, everyday.

Playground zones were consolidated into a single zone with fixed hours in 2016. This was done in consultation with and with the support of the Calgary Police Service, the Alberta Motor Association, Calgary Board of Education, Calgary Catholic School District and other municipalities in Alberta. The fixed hours reflect the times pedestrians are usually using playground zones, and give motorists consistent and specific times that are easy to remember.
