Free Public Sunscreen

This summer, free public sunscreen dispensers have been installed as part of a pilot project to fight skin cancer by making sunscreen more accessible. The project has been powered by Save Your Skin Foundation and medical student Samuel Farag, with support from the City of New Westminster. Read their press release.

Find dispensers on the pool deck at Moody Park Outdoor Pool, Hume Park Outdoor Pool (reservations required to enter), and during operational hours for Grimston Park Wading Pool. Sunscreen provided is Health Canada approved SPF 30 mineral sunscreen, which is a zinc oxide-based sunscreen, free from chemical sunscreen filters, common allergens and toxic ingredients.
