City of Albuquerque Parks and Recreation Reopening Guidelines - Phase 1, Part 1

The following rules must be followed by all users of facilities open to the public

The City of Albuquerque Parks and Recreation Department is excited to reopen several of its facilities to the public beginning Saturday, May 16, 2020. Each facility will have specific rules that all visitors must follow while they are on the premises. These rules are in place to protect the health and safety of the general public and our employees. All facilities will be implementing COVID-Safe Practices (CSPS) and urge the public to assist us with these efforts.

Visitors to all facilities should expect a brief health screening, including a temperature check, to ensure they do not pose a health risk to other members of the public or staff.
