COVID-19 Parks & Recreation Information

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to be a risk to the health and safety of our community. With states reopening, it is important for our agency to begin phasing in pieces of parks and recreation for the health and enjoyment of all in a responsible and safe manner.

We ask those who participate in programs and visit parks and other facilities, to adhere to CDC Guidelines of staying home if you feel sick or have been sick within the past two weeks, washing hands frequently, avoid large crowds, social distance with other users who are not within your household.

For those who participate in programs or visit facilities or parks, there is a risk you could contract COVID-19. Visitors take full responsibility for their own protection, including disinfecting hands and anything touched.

Schedules and closures can be altered at any time based upon the most recent State orders, CDC Guidelines, City of Joplin orders, or as facility use dictates.
