Parks and recreation centers throughout Huntsville are reopening with new guidelines in place. 

While the parks and others across the city are open to the public, some parts of them remain off limits due to social distancing.

The city says separate family units should maintain a six feet distance from one another. Patrons and employees are encouraged to wear face coverings. Close contact sports like soccer, basketball and baseball are not allowed, but activities like disk golf, tennis and archery are allowed if social distancing is followed. All weight rooms, splash pads, playgrounds, pavilions and park restrooms will remain closed.

City recreation centers will open at 9 a.m. on Monday and close at 6 p.m. for limited activities. Staff will routinely sanitize equipment and other high touch areas.
