Boulder Reopens Playgrounds, Pools, and Rec Centers So You Can Finally Get Your Kids Out of the House
If you’re ready to put up your kids for adoption because you’ve been stuck in the house with them since March, hold off for the summer. Playgrounds, pools, and rec centers are finally starting to slowly reopen in Boulder.
Spruce Pool is now open on a reservation-only basis for one-hour time blocks in individual lap lanes, city playgrounds are now open with capacity limit,s and the North Boulder Recreation Center will reopen Monday on a reservation-only basis for lap swimming, cardio, the weight room and other fitness activities.
At Spruce Pool and North Boulder Recreation Center, visitors will be required to wear a face mask unless swimming, and locker rooms will either remain closed or be limited in their service. For parks, there will be a limit of 25 people, and groups can have no more than 10 people. Face masks will be required.
“Our team has been working very hard to get services going as public health orders have permitted,” Parks and Recreation Director Ali Rhodes said in a statement announcing the reopenings.
“We are so excited that kids can enjoy our playgrounds again, that the beautiful waters of Spruce are open, and that very soon, community members can move their bodies and fill their hearts at the recreation centers. There are protocols in place so that this can all happen safely for community members and our team,” Rhodes said.
