Upper Arlington Neighborhood Bridges
Gateway to Kindness Flyer (PDF 549KB)
In response to COVID-19, Neighborhood Bridges has made it easier to get help where it’s needed quickly and effectively, matching interested volunteers in our community to residents with a need. It could be as simple as helping our seniors by picking up groceries and dropping them at the door, running an errand or mowing their lawn. It could also be donating items or funds to help a family in crisis, or helping to tutor a student via facetime. Some needs may be a one-time request, others might be ongoing during the COVID-19 outbreak.

If You Want to Help:

  • Follow Upper Arlington Bridges on Facebook
  • Subscribe to Upper Arlington Neighborhood Bridges to start receiving emails about new requests by clicking here. When you receive an email request that you can assist with, all you have to do is click on the box “VIEW ALL UPPER ARLINGTON NEEDS” to go to the UA Bridges webpage, then find the request you are interested in and click on the “I CAN HELP” link.

Park Facilities Updates

All City and School Playgrounds Are Closed
The City and UA Schools support the March 22 order by Governor DeWine to close all public playgrounds in Ohio to help prevent the spread of the Coronavirus. Public parks and open outdoor recreation areas are excluded from Ohio’s “Stay in Place” order, however playgrounds are closed because they bring many children together in close proximity sharing play equipment, increasing the risk of transmitting the Coronavirus.

Some additional facilities within our parks have been closed for health and safety reasons:

  • The roller hockey rink at Sunny 95 Park
  • Fitness stations at Fancyburg Park and Thompson Park

It’s still possible to enjoy our parks and public spaces for recreation and exercise. When you do visit our parks, please follow appropriate social distancing protocols:

  • Keep your distance from other residents who are not part of your group
  • Don’t engage in group play activities that could involve contact with others
  • Bring disinfecting wipes and use before and after touching any park amenities
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands
  • Don’t share water bottles, cups or food
  • If you bring your dogs with you for exercise, follow the City’s leash laws
  • When dogs are allowed to be off leash, make sure they are still under your control and try to avoid people outside of your group touching your dog
  • Wash your hands thoroughly for at least 20 seconds when you get home
  • If you feel unwell or have a fever STAY HOME

Staying active during the Stay in Place order can help reduce stress and stay healthy, and we encourage you to continue to find ways to get outside while being mindful of yours and the safety of others.

Safe Use of Parks and Trails
The National Parks & Recreation Association has developed some simple “social distancing” guidelines to follow for anyone wishing to enjoy the mental and physical health benefits of getting outside during this difficult time. They include:

  • Refrain from using parks or trails if you are exhibiting symptoms.
  • Follow CDC’s guidance on personal hygiene prior to and during use of parks or trails.
  • Prepare for limited access to public restrooms or water fountains. NOTE: in UA’s case, park restrooms and water fountains are not accessible at this time.
  • While on trails, warn other users of your presence and as you pass, and step aside to let others pass.
  • Follow CDC guidance on the recommended size of social gatherings including outdoor picnicking, pick-up sports and other group hangouts, and maintain proper physical distance at all times.
  • Observe CDC’s minimum recommended social distancing of six feet from other individuals at all times. If this is not possible, users should find an alternate location.

The City is adjusting its operations in response to COVID-19. Basic City operations will continue, and we remain committed to serving the community; however, we have reduced non-essential service levels. These adjustments are appropriate given the current situation and are consistent with the Ohio Governor’s social distancing orders. We recognize that there are many items to consider and we also want to make sure we are meeting the needs of our residents. We therefore encourage you contact us if you have questions, suggestions, ideas or needs that we should be aware of to help improve our response to this rapidly evolving situation. Please complete and submit this form. You will hear back from a member of Staff about your query or idea within one business day. Thank you.
