Nampa Parks & Recreation announces opening all park restrooms and some youth activities

Nampa Parks and Recreation will be opening park restrooms, some organized youth activities and day camps as of May 4, 2020. Additional openings will be evaluated in stages and are dependent on assessing the current health and wellbeing of the Nampa community.

For the past several weeks, park restrooms in all Nampa parks have been closed due to the efforts to flatten the curve of the coronavirus. Beginning May 4, restrooms in City parks will be opened during daylight hours and cleaned twice daily.

The City Parks and Recreation Department will also allow youth sport organizations to practice at city park facilities. Nampa Parks and Recreation staff have stated that field space will only be allocated for practices. At this time, games will not be allowed, and no decision has been made regarding when games may be scheduled. Organized leaders are expected to follow and enforce the “Stage 1 Protocols for Youth Activities” described in the Idaho Rebounds information. Park picnic shelters are not reservable for public functions at this time.

In compliance with the “Idaho Rebounds” protocols, the Nampa Parks and Recreation Department will offer limited youth activities and day camps that accommodate suggested health guidelines such as physical distancing and diligent hygiene. Even though some small programs will be offered, the Nampa Recreation Center will remain closed to the general public until Stage 2 of the “Idaho Rebounds” State plan.

While playgrounds at City parks remain closed for the time being, City leadership is currently discussing the guidelines and timeline around reopening playgrounds and hopes to have an announcement soon.

City of Nampa Closes Golf Courses and City Park Restrooms

To support and encourage our residents to stay home, as ordered by Governor Little, and to reduce the potential spread of Coronavirus in Canyon County, we have decided to close our golf courses and park restrooms until further notice.
The two Nampa municipal golf courses which are closing are Centennial Golf Course and Ridgecrest Golf Club.

The City of Nampa closed playgrounds at park locations earlier this week and has decided to close restrooms at public parks effective immediately. While we understand restrooms are a necessity, our first priority is to protect our citizens against the spread of Coronavirus in Nampa.

Nampa Mayor Debbie Kling said, “While I understand some will not appreciate the closure of the golf courses and restrooms, with confirmed cases of Coronavirus spread in Canyon County, we all need to do our part now in reducing the spread of this virus. Please honor the Governor’s stay-home order.”

CITY OF NAMPA PLAYGROUNDS CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
To prevent the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19), the City of Nampa Parks & Recreation Department and Nampa School District will CLOSE all playgrounds effective immediately and until further notice.
There are 23 city managed playgrounds within the City of Nampa. We ask residents to refrain from using swings, slides and avoid using or touching any other park equipment until further notice.
Parks and Recreation maintenance staff will be taping off all playgrounds beginning March 25 and posting signs in English and Spanish at each site alerting residents to these closures.
Although the playgrounds will be closed, the parks and pathways will remain open to the public at this time. Please note this is subject to any further guidance issued by the health district or State of Idaho. Citizens are reminded to follow recommendations from Centers for Disease Control and local health authorities.
