To the Airway Heights Parks and Recreation Community:
As this unprecedented global situation carries on with no definitive timeline to a return of normalcy, the Parks & Recreation Department will officially be on a furloughed status until further notice. While the Recreation Center has been close for a few weeks now, all memberships have been put on pause, and all Spring programming has been canceled, including our Spring Youth Sports Seasons. All accounts have been credited, and credits will be ready for use as soon as the governor lifts his order restricting the use of the facility.
While we would normally be gearing up for a summer full of programs and activities we have had to make some decisions to cancel and postpone many activities that have become a part of our Summer routine here in Airway Heights. Airway Heights Days and the Summer Moonlight Movies Series have been officially canceled. Summer kids programs such as Adventure Heights are currently postponed until our return, and will be modified to meet any social distancing guidelines, and group capacity limitations.
When we do return, we ask for your patience and understanding as we work through a new philosophy of programming and providing access to health and wellbeing. Many of our programs and offerings will see a new format in the beginning, and will adjust as the situation around us allows. Our mission has always been to improve the quality of life in our community through people, parks, and programs. That will never be more true than when we return. Providing places that people feel safe, have access healthy activities, and that bring people together will still be our focus, it just might look and feel a little different.
We would also like to note that our parks are still open, but playgrounds are closed until further notice. We ask that when using the parks be aware of your surroundings and work to find ways to enjoy these wonderful public spaces while keeping a safe distance from the other parks users. Group activities and team sports and games should be avoided, including pick up basketball and volleyball. Park restrooms will remain closed until we are able to ensure they are cleaned and sanitized regularly.
Please bear with us. We will be back and ready to serve our community with the same passion as we always have.
As we receive more information about our return to serving our community we will post all updates on our website, and our facebook page. If you should have any questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org . We will work to get back to you as soon as we possibly can.
