DURHAM RECREATION & PARK DISTRICT
Re-Opening Update - Tuesday, May 12, 2020
We hope this email finds you and your family healthy and well. All of us at DRPD wanted to update you on our tentative plans for re-opening some of our programs. However, nothing is solidified as of today, May 12, 2020. As with all recreation and park districts in our area, we are working diligently with Butte County to open up each Phase carefully and as safely as possible. We are all looking forward to resuming programs and bringing the community back together, but it will take some time and new policies to ensure everyone's safety.
Summer Camp (ASP childcare programming) will tentatively be opening up on June 8th at the earliest. The re-opening of our facility to provide childcare and fun activities for your children will happen with the introduction of some new policies and procedures (including but not limited to: check-in/check-out, strict registration rules, smaller groups, station rotation and cleaning). We hope that everyone understands. We will open registration as soon as we have an official start date, and let everyone know through email and social media.
We are still anxiously awaiting news on opening our pool. It is a cornerstone of the Durham Community during the summer. While we are hoping to open as soon possible, we still do not have an estimated date of when that will happen.
All DRPD Parks will remain open. DRPD staff strongly recommends that users follow all CDC recommendations. As a District we are increasing our efforts to maintain clean facilities and being vigilant about our disinfecting and sanitary efforts for not only our patrons and community members, but also our employees.
DRPD will also be putting out more information about potential summer camps including: baking, space camp and musical theater camp.
Our office remains closed to the public, but we continue to check emails and phone messages.
DRPD will continue to keep the community updated as we get more information.
We appreciate everyone’s understanding during this rapidly evolving, fluid situation, and we look forward to seeing everyone again!
Welcome to D.R.P.D.!
