Parks & Recreation (17)
In the event of rain, camps and swim lessons will not be canceled. If lightning is spotted by lifeguards, the pool will be evacuated and will partake in a 30 minute delay beginning from the last sighting. Prolonged delays could result in a rescheduling. Camps can meet indoors.
In public parks, dogs must be on a leash from 8 am to 8 pm during Daylight Savings Time and 8 am to 5 pm during Eastern Standard Time. At all other hours, dogs must still be under control by the owner. Additional responsible pet ownership guidelines can be found by linking to our Animal Control page.
