Select Outdoor Park Facilities to Re-Open with Limited Use

As a result of today’s announcements by Governor Abbott, the following outdoor park facilities and amenities will re-open with limited use on May 1, 2020.

  • Dog Park
  • Tennis and Pickleball Courts at Bicentennial Park (no more than 4 participants per court)
  • Batting Cages at Bicentennial and Bob Jones Parks
  • Restrooms
  • Pavilions
  • Picnic Tables
  • Benches

With the re-opening of these park facilities and amenities, the Community Services department has adopted enhanced sanitizing practices. In addition to daily cleaning, bathrooms will be deeply sanitized once a week and wall-mounted hand sanitizer stations have been added.

We continue to encourage you to make the best possible decisions for yourself and your family by following expert guidance and advice, reducing the risk of being infected or infecting others, and staying up-to-date about the latest information. With that in mind here are some tips from the CDC and the National Parks and Recreation Association about using our facilities during this time.
