    Pima County Natural Resources, Parks and Recreation plans to begin offering a limited swim lesson program by early July, but pools, splash pads and the swim team program will not open this summer due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Brandi Fenton ParkPima County NRPR will continue to carefully monitor CDC guidelines and will consider a late season opening of splash pads.

    The County will remove the caution tape at ramadas beginning this Memorial Day Weekend as part of a detailed, phased reopening of numerous facilities that have been shuttered since mid-March. Playgrounds and picnic areas also will be opened this weekend.

    Signs at ramadas will discourage use by large groups. The ramadas will be open on a first-come, first-served basis, though the public still won’t be able to reserve ramadas via the County’s online reservation system.

    Some facilities and amenities remained open during the pandemic, including parks, dog parks, natural resource parks, The Chuck Huckelberry Loop, some restrooms, drinking fountains, individual picnic tables, campgrounds, trailheads, hiking trails, congregate meals, tennis courts and skate parks.

    On May 16, two of the County’s shooting ranges also reopened for weekend use. Details are available on the Shooting Sports Program website.

    Decisions on all programs and facilities remain fluid, given the uncertainty of the coronavirus and evolving guidelines from public health officials. Check the Natural Resources, Parks and Recreation website and NRPR’s Facebook page for updates.
