COVID-19  Parks and Recreation Procedures

All  programs, activities and events conducted in facilities managed by Staunton Parks and Recreation are suspended through April 15. City parks, excluding indoor facilities, remain open for use by individuals. 

  • City parks remain open and users are required to use stringent social distancing measures. All indoor facilities are closed
  • As of April 1, 2020, Gypsy Hill Golf Course and tennis courts, pickle ball courts and the skate park are also closed. Read the press release.                                                                                                                                                               
  • March 26, the basketball courts at Gypsy Hall Park, Montgomery Hall Park, Booker T. Washington Community Center and the Library will be closed to the public.                                                                             
  • As of 5 p.m. on Monday, March 23, 2020 City Hall and the Irene Givens Administration Building in Montgomery Hall Park will be closed to the public. Citizens will have uninterrupted access to city staff for continued services to the greatest extent possible.
  • Effective immediately and through April 15, playgrounds at Montgomery Hall Park, Gypsy Hill Park and Booker T. Washington Community Center are closed due to the public health emergency. The parks and recreation department will implement closures.
  • Public bathrooms in both Montgomery Hall and Gypsy Hill parks will be closed effective Wednesday, March 18, at 7:30 a.m.  While the parks remain open, their use has increased significantly.  As a result, it has become difficult to maintain an appropriate standard of cleanliness in the restrooms that will keep both the public and our employees safe.
  • The little league fields in Gypsy Hill Park are now locked. Please remember that events or activities with 10 or more participants, including team baseball practice, are prohibited.

Residents are also encouraged to read this statement from the National Recreation and Parks Association on using parks while maintaining social distancing.
