Playground Zones

30 km/h between 7:30am-9pm (7:30-21:00) every day where playground zone signs are posted. Extended hours:

  • Protect children attending after-hour activities at schools
  • Reduce driver confusion around changing hours in different zones
  • Creates consistent start and end times city-wide where our children play

There are currently 387 playground zones in Edmonton.

Caution, School or Play Area

The yellow signs, commonly known as playground zone or school zone signs, are sometimes seen without the speed-limit posted below it. These signs mean a school is in the area or children may be playing nearby. Caution is required, but the 30 km/h speed limit does not apply.

You may see these signs where schools or playgrounds are located on arterial roads or near green spaces without playground equipment.
