[ARCHIVED] UPDATED 3-19: Parks and Recreation Department Cancellations & Closures

In an effort to do what is in the best interests of the community in light of recommendations from the Health Department regarding the COVID-19 health outbreak, the Kalispell Parks and Recreation Department has decided to close all city owned playgrounds to the public. This includes all the playgrounds listed on the attached city parks and amenities spreadsheet. Restrooms in the parks have not opened for the season and will remain closed for the foreseeable future. Gazebo rentals have also been suspended.

We would also like to remind the public to utilize social distancing measures if using parks and trails, giving others plenty of room as we all do our part to flatten the curve of COVID-19 spread. Your cooperation in this closure is greatly appreciated as we attempt to minimize the risks of the health emergency, we are all facing.

POST ON 3-16-20

Kalispell Parks and Recreation’s first priority is the health and safety of our community participants. With Governor Bullock’s implemented two week closure of public schools across Montana, following the growing threat and concern of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), the Kalispell Parks and Recreation Department will be canceling our Afterschool Program and Spring Break Camp, effective immediately through March 27, 2020. Also our sports programs including Adult Soccer and Little Dribblers basketball will be suspended until further notice.

We are sorry for the inconvenience and welcome your calls to 758-7975 to answer your questions and assist you.

We will continue to provide updates through participant emails and Facebook as we acquire information.
