Phased Reopening of Parks & Recreation Facilities!

Updated May 1, 2020
We are happy to announce the phased reopening of parks & recreation facilities! Operations will follow the protocol set forth by the governor and local authorities, and will be done in a phased approached. 

Phase I will include the reopening of the A. C. Brase Arena, Osage Centre, Shawnee Park Center, Jaycee Municipal Golf Course, SportsPlex, outdoor pavilions, tennis courts & dog park beginning Monday, May 4. Indoor facilities will have enhanced sanitation, social distancing and capacity protocols (protocols will vary by facility due to facility size and function). Indoor facility protocols can be found below. Social distancing is required at all facilities and park amenities.

Please note parks and trails will remain open, but park amenities such as playgrounds, skate parks and outdoor basketball courts will remain closed. Aquatic facilities will also be closed in Phase I. In order to avoid comprising social distancing, no programming, large events or gatherings will be scheduled during Phase I. 

At this time we do plan on having programming later this summer! We hope to resume programming, leagues and aquatics in Phase II (target timeframe of June) with social distancing guidelines. Program and league directors will be in contact with participants on any date changes. Find current program start date details or cancellations below.

All patrons should note that they are responsible for following facility social distancing & other protocols, and play is at your own risk. If you are sick or vulnerable, please stay home.
