The health and safety of our community is our top priority and we will continue to monitor the viability and safety of keeping these facilities open in accordance with public health agency guidelines and state and city emergency orders,” said Julie Hannon, Parks and Recreation director. “I am grateful to everyone involved in developing a solution that allows us to keep these facilities open during this critical time.”
