Parks & Recreation - Current Facility Operations
We miss you! Erie Parks & Recreation is working hard planning for the return of more recreation facilities and programming while adhering to public health guidance, including requirements around physical distancing and face coverings. This page will be updated frequently as information becomes available and operational decisions are made. Please check back often.
Town of Erie Mayor, Jennifer Carroll, extended to all of Erie a Boulder County order requiring face coverings beginning on Saturday, May 9, 2020. The order requires every person over the age of 10 to wear a face covering anywhere in the Town of Erie when they are not maintaining social distancing of 6 feet from any non-household member.
We’re Still Connecting You to Fun!
The Parks and Recreation Department is currently offering a variety of virtual programming including fitness classes, science camps, sports and more! Please visit our Virtual Programming page for a complete list of offerings.
Additionally, we invite you to check the Parks & Recreation Facebook page for activity ideas, challenges, workouts, nutrition tips and more on our Facebook page.
