Mobile cooling spots in public parks (watering nozzles)

Only during a heat wave period and if announced by the Borough, coolant nozzles will be installed by our public works crews in some parks to provide refreshing points for neighbourhood residents. These temporary installations can be identified by orange cones from outside of which hoses provide continuous watering. These nozzles are located at the following locations: 

  • Paquin Park 
  • Basswood Street
  • Cloverdale Park
  • Riverdale School Park
  • Rive-Boisée Park
  • St. Barnabas Park

Facilities are open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.

How to protect yourself during a heat wave

  • Drink six to eight glasses of water a day. Don’t wait until you feel thirsty.
  • To help your body temperature get back to normal, rest in a cool place – with air conditioning, or in the shade – for two hours every day.
  • Wear loose, light-coloured clothing.
  • Limit physical effort, especially in the middle of the day when temperatures are highest.
  • Take a cool shower or bath, or cool down with a wet towel.
  • Call people you are close to, especially older or vulnerable people, to find out how they are doing.
