Fire Pit Permits
Outdoor private fire pits are permitted with a valid permit, but all public health measures and restrictions must be followed.
April 17, 2021: There is currently no fire ban within the City of Spruce Grove’s municipal boundaries. Residents are allowed to have fires in approved fire pits that meet the City’s guidelines and that have been issued a free fire pit permit. This information only applies to people living within Spruce Grove’s municipal boundaries. Residents of Parkland County or the Town of Stony Plain should check with their respective municipal offices for fire ban information specific to their community. Fire ban information is also available at www.albertafirebans.ca.
CSA and ULC approved propane fuelled appliances/fire pits can be used as per manufacturer’s recommendations on your property without a permit.
