COVID-19 Response

Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Administration Building and the Sports Office reopened to the public on June 1, 2020. Members of the public entering the above-listed city facilities will be required to undergo temperature and symptom checks as well as to wear a mask if they are medically able. Masks will be available for those who do not have one. Employees in this building are subject to the same entrance procedures.

Parks, trails and open spaces are open per the governor’s Safer-at-Home order. However, this does not mean you should use these spaces as you normally would. If you choose to participate in responsible outdoor recreation, please adhere to the following at all times:

  • All City playgrounds reopened to the public on June 5, 2020. Only 25 people should use these areas at a time. Outdoor sport courts, fields and skate parks are open for up to 25 people at a time.
  • Wear a face covering when possible.
  • Do not use parks, trails and open spaces if you are exhibiting symptoms. If you or your children are experiencing symptoms, it’s important to stay home when sick.
  • Follow the CDC’s guidance on personal hygiene prior to, during and after use of parks or trails. Bring hand sanitizer with you to clean your hands if soap and water are not available.
  • Maintain a physical distance of 6 feet from members of other households at all times. In many cases, especially on trails, this may mean creating a single-file line. If this is not possible, find an alternate location or depart that space.
  • While on trails, warn other users of your presence before you pass, and step aside to let others pass. Signal your presence with your voice, bell or horn.
  • Bring water.

For the current status of various facilities, programs and services, please visit the respective web pages.

Want to know if you should visit your favorite park today? Based on two daily visual inspections, park rangers are noting the volume of visitors at popular City parks. If the park is experiencing high traffic, check out a different spot, or perhaps opt to get some fresh air in your neighborhood that day. Generally, these popular parks and trails are least busy early in the morning or later in the day. This data is available at www.healthyparks.co. Thank you for doing your part to reduce the strain on our favorite places. We are all in this together.
