Glens Falls Recreation Department Cancels Summer Programming

In the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic and the Covid-19 threat, and in the interest of maintaining public health, the Glens Falls Recreation Department has cancelled the bulk of its summer programming:

The Kids Club Day Camp program at East Field and Crandall Park will not be offered this summer. 

The East Field pool and Haviland’s Cove beach will not open this summer. 

The City Band 2020 concert series in City Park is cancelled. 

The Recreation softball league is cancelled for 2020.

Basketball courts in City parks are closed. 

Playground equipment is off limits until further notice.

Team field sports such as football, baseball, softball, soccer and lacrosse are prohibited.

Picnicking in city parks is discouraged except among members of the same household.

Group events such as block parties and festivals are cancelled through June 30th. In mid-June the City will evaluate events scheduled for July and August and make a determination.

Any other programming offered in the 2020 Spring/Summer Brochure is cancelled, with a couple of exceptions:

Tennis and pickleball will be allowed on city courts. Nets are being installed this week. 

The community gardening program at East Field and Sagamore Parks will still be offered.

Visitors to City parks should maintain social distancing. Park visitors should wear masks covering nose and mouth when 6 feet or closer to other individuals. 

The Covid-19 threat is an evolving situation and the City will evaluate its policies as new information becomes available.
