Park and Recreation Patrons,
In consideration of the recent developments regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the City of Fayetteville is suspending all spring programs and events held in the Fayetteville Parks system starting today, March 13, 2020 until further notice. This will include, but not be limited to, youth and adult soccer, baseball, softball, ultimate frisbee, disc golf, sand volleyball, and all park volunteer events. The Yvonne Richardson Community Center will be closed. The Area Agency on Aging will determine and announce any changes to the operations of the Walker Park Senior Activity and Wellness Center.
All City Parks will remain open to the public. Please follow all precautions from the Center of Disease Control and other related health organizations to help prevent the spread of germs when using parks. We strongly encourage individuals, groups and organizations planning events and meetings to postpone, reschedule or move to a virtual environment.
By Monday, March 30, 2020 the City of Fayetteville will reassess the COVID-19 situation and announce further plans for all parks and recreation programs and events. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time to keep Fayetteville healthy and safe.
Please continue to monitor our website as the information is changing hourly. The Mayor will be updating the media throughout the day on specific closings and services. The City of Fayetteville is closely monitoring the rapidly changing situation and maintains a web page with updates for the public at fayetteville-ar.gov/covid19.
