“In accordance with Mayor Muriel Bower’s lifting of the District’s Stay-at-Home Order and the start of Phase One, DPR outdoor facilities will be available for public use beginning Friday, May 29, 2020.
Like you, DPR is excited to begin this first phase and reopen our many parks and facilities after an extended closure. We look forward to welcoming residents back and appreciate your patience as we work to make sure all these public spaces meet our Gold Standard and are ready for our residents’ use. If an amenity at your local DPR facility is not ready immediately, rest assured we are working as fast as possible and will be there soon.
Starting Friday, May 29, the following DPR facilities will be OPEN with social distancing safeguards:
• Athletic Fields
• Walking Paths, Hiking Trails, and Tracks
• Dog Parks
• Tennis Courts
The following DPR facilities will remain CLOSED until further notice:
• Recreation Centers
• Public Pools
• Indoor Facilities
Please note that during Phase One, while on DPR grounds,
no-to-low contact sports (tennis) are permitted. Meanwhile, contact sports (basketball, football, soccer) are still prohibited until further notice.”
