Coronavirus 2019 Parks & Recreation Program Policy Adjustment Notice

Coronavirus 2019 Parks & Recreation Program Policy Adjustment Notice

March 24 Update

As we work to stay current on and respond appropriately to the continually evolving Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) situation occurring across the nation, and now in Ohio, the Upper Arlington Parks & Recreation Department supports the restrictions that are being put in place through the Governor’s Office and the Ohio Department of Health. As such, it has been necessary to implement a number of temporary adjustments:

  • All Parks & Recreation Department facilities are closed and programs cancelled through the end of April. This includes the UA Senior Center, Amelita Mirolo Barn, park shelters and playgrounds.
  • All organized use of athletic fields are cancelled through the end of April.
  • All department classes and programs are cancelled through the end of April, including Sunday Swim.
  • All special events are cancelled through the end of April.
  • Refunds will be made in full for all program sessions and facility rentals cancelled within this timeframe.

The department is continually monitoring the State’s restrictions to contain the COVID-19 outbreak and may extend cancellations. Policy updates will be communicated through normal methods including the City’s website, email, phone calls, and social media posts. For updated information on COVD-19 and to better understand the risks and steps we should all take to minimize its spread, visit the Franklin County Public Health Department’s website:
