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

  • Balch Street Fitness Center will remain closed to the general public until further notice.

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.
