City Curbside SWAP

September 12, 2015 is being set for this years’ city-wide annual “Curbside Swap Day”. If your group is already doing a spring event, excellent, if not could you promote the fall day.

What I would like to know from your community is which time of year would be best for a city-wide clean up, spring or fall?

The Curbside Swap webpage on the city’s website will have promotional information available or give me a call and I can forward you the posters, postcard (attached) etc.

Summer Spray Pads Are OPEN!

Cool off this summer at any of the 17 City of Saskatoon spray pads located around the city.  Summer spray pads are open for the season and will be operational daily from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

 Please note, spray pad sites located on or near school grounds have timers and are set to turn spray features off during recess and lunch breaks.  Shut-off times will vary according to individual school schedules.  All spray pads are activated by push buttons located near the spray features.

To find a spray pad location near you, visit www.saskatoon.ca/spraypads or call 306-975-3378.
