Firewood in City Parks

The City does not provide firewood in parks. However, residents can bring their own firewood to build a fire in designated areas.

  • Park users should not bring elm for their fires, in order to minimize the spread of Dutch Elm Disease
  • Park users are encouraged to purchase firewood from local suppliers including several retailers or Kerry Wood Nature Centre and Fort Normandeau, to reduce the risk of introducing tree pests
  • Park users are also prohibited from cutting down branches or using deadwood found in parks. Using deadwood to make a fire interferes with the natural processes in our parks. Dead and decaying trees protect our soil, water, and wildlife habitat.
