Fishers began opening its park facilities with a phased approach May 22, coinciding with Gov. Eric Holcomb’s Back on Track Indiana plan, which entered Stage 3 May 22.
Since the COVID-19 pandemic, Fishers has kept its parks and trails open for outdoor recreation but has closed park amenities such as athletic courts, shelters and restrooms.
On May 22, all public restroom facilities in parks properties were de-winterized and opened to the public. Going forward, restrooms will be cleaned daily, following CDC cleaning guidelines. Playgrounds and drinking fountains will remain closed, but all noncontact athletic courts and fields, including basketball, baseball, tennis and pickleball courts, have reopened. Field rentals resumed for practice and conditioning activities only.
Beginning June 14, when Stage 4 takes effect, athletic field rentals for groups of 250 or more are set to return. Park splash pads and the Saxony Lake and Beach also will reopen June 14. Shelter and venue rentals for groups up to 100 began June 1, and shelter rentals for groups up to 250 are set to begin June 14.
All park amenities are planned to be fully operational during Stage 5, which is set to begin July 4.
Fishers Parks also recently announced the 2020 Fishers Summer Concert Series will be canceled in addition to all June summer camps.
