News Release - Winter Swing Removal Maintains Playground Safety

Date Published: 
October 25 2021

Beginning the week of October 25th Clearview’s Parks, Culture and Recreation staff will be removing the swings from all Clearview playgrounds to maintain safety during the winter season.

Playgrounds are inspected by Clearview staff daily Monday to Friday from April 15th to October 29th. Winter weather causes safety concerns and sometimes prevents proper inspection of the equipment.

“We recognize that families may be disappointed by the removal of the swings, but safety is our number one priority,” said Terry Vachon, General Manager of Parks, Culture and Recreation.”

Ensuring the safety of Clearview’s playgrounds allows families in our community to enjoy our parks and playgrounds with peace of mind. 
The swings will be re-installed in the Spring once weather and staff resources allow for proper playground inspection. For more information about Clearview’s parks and green spaces please visit
