Mansfield Parks & Recreation is continuing the phased reopening process based on recommendations from Governor Abbott in executive order GA-23 by opening most park amenities by Monday, June 1. We appreciate the public’s patience and understanding as our crews work to reinstall, reopen and inspect the equipment.
Mansfield Parks & Recreation Phase I Reopening: May 20
Mansfield Parks & Recreation Phase II Reopening: June 1
Public Private Partner Reopenings
TBD: Programs or Amenities Not Yet Scheduled for Reopening
All amenities reopening this week will resume their normal cleaning and inspection schedule but it is impossible to fully sanitize playgrounds, benches/tables, drinking fountains and restrooms from germs and viruses.
All current public health recommendations remain in effect:
All visitors are asked to follow these guidelines and help monitor your own family. Park staff will not be on site to enforce restrictions and are relying on the public’s cooperation to keep everyone healthy. If you do not feel safe visiting the park with the current conditions, please stay home until the health emergency has passed and your family is more comfortable in public spaces.
Social distance is still recommended for recreational sports; please avoid using the basketball or volleyball courts with individuals not in your same household until it is safe to do so. Spectators at youth league games must maintain social distance in bleachers and on sidelines at all times. Players and coaches should limit contact and keep as much distance as possible within the course of the game.
The Splash Pad at Clayton W. Chandler Park will not reopen at this time; current government orders prohibit splash pads from operating. The splash pad will be revisited once those policies are lifted and new protocols are established for cleaning and operating the water feature in a way that is safe and healthy for all guests.
Recreational programs at the Mansfield Activities Center and Oliver Nature Park will resume June 1. Many programs and operational policies were modified to stay in accordance with the current executive order, as detailed in this previous announcement.
Senior Lifestyles serves a high risk population and will remain closed at this time. Kids Zone Day Camp is on schedule to begin June 15, once staff has established procedures to conduct the camp in a safe manner that follows all guidelines and restrictions.
We appreciate your patience as we navigate these new restrictions and work to provide the community with quality parks and programs in the safest, healthiest manner possible.
