Hot Weather in Store for Southwestern BC

Posted July 13, 2018

While hot and sunny conditions are welcomed news for most, Environment and Climate Change Canada and Medical Health Officers are reminding residents to take precautions to protect themselves from the heat. Keep cool by:

  • Spending time in an air-conditioned facility (such as a shopping centre, library, community centre or restaurant) for at least several hours every day.
  • Dress for the weather by wearing loose, light-weight clothing. Protect yourself from the sun by wearing a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses.
  • Avoid sunburn, stay in the shade or use sunscreen with SPF 30 or more
  • NEVER leave children or pets alone in a parked car.
  • Check in on others - People living alone are at high risk of severe heat related illness.

Site requests can be made only by submitting a completed Picnic Application form to Parksallotments@burnaby.ca after February 1 of each year (i.e. on February 1, 2018 for Spring/Summer 2019). Emails or phone messages will not be accepted. All applications are reviewed by allotment staff to ensure the suitability of the booking and compliance with park-use regulations. Staff will follow up with a formal confirmation upon receipt of completed application. To retain your site, payment is due immediately upon receipt of contract.

Fees vary from location to location and from year to year. Additional charges will be levied to cover expenses incurred as a result of providing excessive clean-up, additional equipment, materials, supervision or damage to the facility or equipment.

Signs are posted at each site advising the public of the procedure for securing formal picnic areas.

The consumption of alcoholic beverages anywhere on park property is strictly prohibited except in prior approved designated beer gardens. Amplified music is permitted if granted. Requests for operating food concessions must be made in writing to the Supervisor of Sports and Outdoor Recreation. Groups will be required to obtain written approval from the Fraser Health Authority (Burnaby office) to ensure that health regulations will be followed.

Special equipment set-up such as tents, stages, bouncy castles, dunk tanks etc. requires the approval of the Supervisor of Sports and Outdoor Recreation prior to the event.
