With a new year comes a fresh beginning as we search for some form of normalcy and getting back to the activities we enjoy. Things may never be the same, but our love for recreation remains.

    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
    ARE PLAYGROUNDS OPEN?
    Yes, but we discourage their use. You should stay six feet away from anyone who doesn’t live with you and follow other CDC guidelines.

    WHEN WILL SPLASH PADS OPEN?
    Splash Pads will reopen on March 1.

    WHEN WILL SENIOR PROGRAMS RESUME?
    Senior adults (ages 55+) are invited to participate in outdoor programming at the Lincoln Recreation Center and Meyer Senior and Community Center beginning Monday, March 1. We're still evaluating when indoor programming will return, and we'll continue to base our decisions on federal, state, and local guidance that prioritizes public health and safety.

    WHEN WILL INDOOR SPORTS RESUME?
    Indoor sports have resumed.

    WHAT ABOUT FACILITY RENTALS?
    We are accepting indoor rentals. If a COVID-19 exposure or confirmed case is detected in a facility, we may postpone, reschedule, or cancel a rental for at least 24 hours for cleaning and sanitizing. Full refunds will be given for cancellations related to COVID-19.

    ARE YOU ACCEPTING VOLUNTEERS?
    We aren’t accepting volunteers for now.

    WHO WILL ENFORCE MINIMUM HEALTH PROTOCOLS FOR NON-CITY-SPONSORED SPORTS AND EVENTS?
    User groups and organizers are responsible for developing, implementing, and enforcing minimum health protocols for their events at our facilities. The city is responsible for sanitizing restrooms, trash cans, and grounds.
We recognize the essential role we play in our community's quality of life, especially during these challenging times. We are faithfully working to create healthier, happier, and more connected communities while responsibly addressing the COVID-19 outbreak. 

We encourage you to get outside and enjoy one of the 54 developed parks with fun-filled amenities near you. We'd love to see and hear ways you are using the outdoors to change your outlook during the pandemic.
