South Suburban Safe Return

South Suburban Parks and Recreation is using a phased approach to reopening indoor/outdoor spaces and programs that complies with the current state recommendations and adheres to strict safety protocols for both patrons and staff.

During this time, we are diligently working on a plan to ensure that our re-opening is done in a way that keeps the community and staff as safe as possible. We are looking to achieve this by implementing reduced facility capacities, limiting gatherings, enforcing social distancing guidelines, enhancing cleaning and sanitization efforts, using PPE and more. Where possible, we will seek to reschedule programs. Memberships will remain on hold.
