Cool off with Hot Summer Nights, returning to a park near you

Guelph Fire Department promotes fire safety in the community

Updated July 13, 2022: With the City going into Level red of the outside water use program (OWUP) today, Hot Summer Nights will continue without the use of fire truck hoses to conserve water. All other activities remain the same.

Guelph, Ont., Monday, July 4, 2022 – Guelph Fire crews will roll into seven parks this summer to help you beat the heat as you learn about fire and emergency safety with the return of “Hot Summer Nights”.

Bring a swimsuit, towel, water bottle and energy to this in-person event and get hosed down by fire crews using their equipment while meeting firefighters, police officers and paramedics up close. While you’re there you can ask them questions, check out the fire trucks, emergency vehicles and equipment, get hands on with activities and have fun while interacting with first responders who you might meet again during an emergency.

Cool off with us between 6:30-7:45 p.m.:

  • Margaret Greene Park, July 14
  • Grange Road Park, July 21
  • Exhibition Park, July 28
  • Orin Reid Park, August 4
  • Waverley Park, August 11
  • Oak Street, August 18
  • Riverside Park, August 25

The crews attending are on duty and may have to leave to respond to an emergency. If the City’s outdoor water use level moves to red, Hot Summer Nights will continue without fire hoses being used until it returns to level yellow or lower.
