All Phoenix Park Amenities Are Reopening

City of Phoenix

Following a vote during Wednesday’s Phoenix City Council meeting, all amenities in city parks will begin reopening effective Thursday, October 8 at 5:30 a.m. Reopening of some amenities will require additional time for Parks and Recreation Department staff to make available. Use of select park amenities has been restricted following a series of City Council orders dating to March and April.

Phoenix’s public parks, trails and golf courses have remained open throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, but outdoor recreational amenities that present high-touch surfaces or an area that made physical distancing difficult have been temporarily closed as city staff and City Council worked together to monitor positive case metrics.

Community members using the city’s outdoor recreational amenities should continue to follow these guidelines related to responsible physical distancing.

  • Do not use public recreational amenities if you are exhibiting symptoms of illness
  • Wear a mask or face covering
  • Bring your own wipes and hand sanitizer
  • Keep a safe distance of six feet or more from others

Detailed information about the city’s outdoor recreational options and free virtual recreation programs is available at
