GREENWOOD — The Greenwood Parks Department plans to open all city playgrounds, including the City Center Park Splash Pad on Friday, June 12.

The opening date has been set in accordance with Governor Eric Holcomb's 'Back on Track Indiana' plan.

To keep spaces clean and safe, residents and visitors will be asked to follow social distancing and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommended personal hygiene guidelines while visiting the parks.

“The Greenwood Parks Department and Greenwood leadership has been preparing for the reopening of these amenities for the past month, and we feel confident residents and visitors will experience a clean and safe atmosphere,” said Parks & Recreation Director Rob Taggart.

City playgrounds will have signs posted at entrances and throughout parks encouraging social distancing and requesting that guests to stay home if they feel sick or are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms. Playgrounds will continue to have routine cleaning and inspections; however, patrons are encouraged to bring their own handwashing and sanitizing supplies.

The City Center Park Splash Pad is a pass-through system meaning that water does not recirculate.

Visitors are responsible for bringing their own equipment and sanitizing products.
