Some city park amenities to open Saturday

Friday, August 14, 2020 by Elizabeth Pagano

Austin Public Health and city leadership have made the decision to reopen limited park amenities and outdoor facilities under Stage 4 Covid-19 Risk-Based Guidelines. On Saturday, the city will open boat launches and boat docks. And operating under new health safety protocols, tennis centers, golf courses, boating concessions, clay shooting concessions and food concessions will also reopen. According to a press release from the city, the parks department will continue “to evaluate its system-wide operations on a daily basis. As risk stages decrease, further consideration will be given to additional PARD openings. It is also possible that if conditions deteriorate, the department will again close amenities/facilities.” Information about park closures and operations can be found on the city website.
