Parks and Recreation Director Kimberly Garrett and City Manager David Morgan updated City Council on May 26 on plans to continue opening the city:

  • Drinking fountains

  • Garey Park

  • Pickleball courts at McMaster

  • Garey House

  • Picnic Pavilions—two tables

  • Playgrounds

  • Recreation center by reservation

  • Volleyball courts



Opens June 15



  • Athletic games for youth

  • Outdoor pools



The pools will open at 25% capacity, Garrett said, adding that right now only the recreation center outdoor pool, Williams Drive Pool and the Village Pool will open. Garrett said the city was not able to host any lifeguard training classes this spring and summer thus far, so officials are relying on all the lifeguards from last year to staff the pools.



Closed




  • Creative playscape

  • Garey Park play ranch

  • Splash pads



Due to the difficulty of practicing social distancing at the above facilities, staff have not yet determined a date to open them, Garrett said. She said each time the governor releases new orders staff reassess and continue to plan the best approach for putting those facilities back into operation.

Regarding special events, Movies in the Park was canceled for June, and it is yet to be determined if the July and August events will take place. Music on the Square was likewise canceled for June but is tentatively anticipated to begin in July.

Morgan said a drive-in celebration is being planned for the 4th of July, where guests would watch entertainment from their cars similar to a drive-in movie theater.
