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.
