Stay Cool Map

As part of the City’s Extreme Heat Response,  staff have developed a map with information for residents indicating where to ‘cool off’ which includes locations of indoor cooling centres (opening when temperatures are 27°C) as well as drinking fountains, outdoor pools, and spray parks. The map also identifies green infrastructure such as parks and natural areas with mature trees and forested areas that create cool shade. Studies completed with the City of Vancouver found a difference of 8 degrees Celcius between neighbourhoods with higher levels of green canopy and those dominated by asphalt on a hot summer's day. In addition to creating this Stay Cool Map, staff install up to 15 temporary misting stations and bottle fillers in priority neighbourhoods.
