Reopening ScheduleUpdated May 22nd, 2020
Review entire Parks Reopening Schedule - June 2020
The Monticello Parks & Recreation Reopening Schedule is only a guide and may change based on direction given by the Governor, Mayor, and or Monticello Parks Board. How we proceed from here will ultimately be determined by our actions as a community and how they affect the containment/spread of this virus. It appears that our area of the state is lagging behind on the Coronavirus curve. With that said, in most areas, our plan will reflect a delayed Governor’s plan and will move forward as follows.
- June 8th - Restroom facilities open to the public - This will allow time for seasonal park staff to be scheduled and restroom preparations for public use to be completed.
- June 12th - Basketball courts / sand volleyball courts to be opened. Park playgrounds begin reopening as new surfacing is installed and initial cleaning of the playground equipment is completed.
- July 4th – Reservation of park facility and field usage to resume – A signed waiver will be required for organized activities & reservations.
- Parks programing will resume in July - Social distancing and face masks are required until further notice.
- Trails remain open – Face masks are recommended.
- Fishing piers and kayak docks remain open – Face masks are recommended while on site.
Monticello City PoolDue to the COVID-19 pandemic and concerns for the health and safety of pool patrons and their families, the Parks Board has made the difficult decision not to open the City Pool for the 2020 season. Park and Pool staff will be making improvements to the facility this season in preparation for opening in the spring of 2021.
Personal ResponsibilityIt is important that all individuals utilizing playground equipment and park facilities acknowledge that COVID-19 may be present. All patrons must take personal precautions in preventing the contraction and/or spread of the virus. Social distancing, wearing face masks, and washing of hands before and after playing on parks equipment or utilizing park facilities are strongly recommended and are necessary in helping to contain and defeat this virus.
