COVID-19 Recreation and Parks Update (5/26/2020)

  • Summer Camps will be starting on June 15.  Camps will be the only programming allowed inside the community centers during this time.
  • Community Centers will remain closed to the general public until further notice.  This includes programming that would normally occur at the centers such as: fitness classes, active adult club meetings and activities, ward meetings, book clubs, card and game playing groups/events, open gyms, Late Night Basketball, room rentals, etc. The City will continue to evaluate reopening the community centers as the summer progresses. 

All future programs and events are subject to change or cancellation, based on then-current public health orders and guidance regarding social distancing. 

City parks remain open for outdoor recreation, like walking or jogging. Playground equipment remains closed until further notice. It is not practical for City crews to adequately sanitize the equipment frequently enough in order for it to be safe for our children to safely play on.  Basketball courts also remain closed as basketball is categorized as a contact sport under the State order and is not allowed currently.
