PARKS AND RECREATION SAFE RETURN
June 28, 2020 UPDATE H2O’Brien Pool
Just when you think you have a plan, everything changes…for the better! With a very recent Douglas County variance to public health orders, there are updates to previously communicated H2O’Brien Pool operations. H2O’Brien Pool will open for the season on July 6! New guidelines limit capacity to 250 people per three-hour session: 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 to 5 p.m. daily. Session attendance is first-come, first-served; metered entry will occur as patrons leave the facility. Registration is not required. Last entry will be at noon and 4 p.m. during the respective session and all patrons in the facility must clear the site at the end of each session. Daily admission, visit passes or memberships (once reinstated) will be accepted.
Memberships remain on hold, however, we are working on the plan for reinstating memberships; you can expect an email with details next week. If you have membership questions, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. For all other inquiries, view www.ParkerRec.com/H2O’BrienPool or email email@example.com. Thank you, it’s a pleasure to serve our patrons once again!
Parker Parks and Recreation is using a phased approach to reopening indoor/outdoor spaces and programs that complies with the current state and federal recommendations and adheres to strict safety protocols for both patrons and staff.
Parker Recreation Furlough Days due to Covid-19 Budget Impacts
Please be advised that the Parker Recreation Center, Parker Fieldhouse and Discovery Park Play Fountain will be closed Monday, June 29 for a Town-wide furlough day. The Facilities will resume regular operations Tuesday, June 30.
Due to COVID-19 budget impacts resulting in a $13 million reduction to the Town’s 2020 budget, all Town of Parker employees, excluding commissioned Police Officers and other public safety sensitive or emergency related positions will take five unpaid furlough days during the remainder of 2020. Additional furlough days, and associated facility closures, are planned for Aug. 31, Oct. 9, Nov. 20 and Dec. 28.
The Recreation Center and Fieldhouse will also be closed Saturday, July 4 for Independence Day.
We appreciate your patience and support during these closures. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
We look forward to welcoming you back! The phased Safe Return plan includes reduced facility capacities, limiting gatherings, enforcing social distancing guidelines, enhancing cleaning and sanitization efforts, using PPE and more.
