Hi Mark: Here are some of the limitations regarding the setting off of fireworks in the City of Barrie:

1. You can only set off fireworks for 5 days before and on the holidays that are Victoria Day, Canada Day, New Years Day and Chinese New Years.
2. You cannot set off fireworks without written permission of the owner of the property – for a park, that would be the City of Barrie.
3. If you are setting off fireworks on City of Barrie property or outside of the time frames listed above you’d need a permit that would include 5,000,000.00 in liability insurance. (This is usually the limiting factor).

By-law 2010-036 regarding setting off fireworks including safe distances to buildings, etc. can be found here:

This by-law is enforced by police and by-law officers, not the fire department.
