PARKS & RECREATION ROUNDUP
JUNE 2, 2020
Welcome to the Parks & Recreation Roundup, a bi-monthly publication aimed at
keeping the community informed on our programs, events, and partnerships
DEPARTMENT HIGHLIGHTS
Select Park Restrooms Open
With warmer weather and park use on the rise, we have opened a number of select public restrooms with enhanced cleaning protocols and health guidelines. With the increased sanitation protocols and reduced workforce due to COVID-19, we're limiting the number of facilities initially so we can focus our efforts on high traffic areas. Open restrooms include Whistler, Fetcher, West Lincoln, Stables and Bear River Parks.
Botanic Park Guided Tours
Although they will look a little different this summer, the Yampa River Botanic Park will be hosting weekly guided tours. These free walking tours are offered Wednesdays and Sundays at 10 AM, and meet at the main gate located on the Botanic Walk. Due to current health orders, participants must pre-register to limit group size, wear a face mask, and respect a 6 foot distance with others. We hope to see you on a tour soon!
Junior Golf Clinics & Play Days
Junior Clinics and Monday Play Days are back at Haymaker Golf Course beginning June 9. Youth programming this summer will include Never Ever Clinics, Beyond the Basics, Girls on the Green, Advanced Academy, Monday Play Days, PGA Junior League and Build Your Own Class. Clinics will be limited to 6 participants and pre-registration will be required in order to comply with current group size regulations.
Summer Youth Tennis Camps
The Steamboat Tennis & Pickleball Center will be offering several recreational youth tennis camps this summer. Half-day camps will be available from 8:30 AM to 12:30 PM and 12:30 PM to 4:30 PM. Combine two half-day camps to make a full day camp. There is also room available in the Giggle Gang Camp for 3-5 year olds. Camp takes place on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 AM to 12 PM. Cost is $90 a week.
Noxious Weed Spraying
Noxious weed spraying has begun in the city's right-of-way and will continue for approximately the next 30 days, weather permitting. The city has hired a private contractor to spray for weeds, including whitetop plants. A harmless blue dye is used to mark where the herbicide has been sprayed. The dye typically disappears in 48 hours, and as a precaution, children and pets should stay away for at least 24 hours.
Trail Condition Reporting
Trail conditions in our area can change by the day, hour or minute. While our trail crews are diligent in maintaining our city trails, monitoring the over 60+ miles is no easy task. This is where you, as a trail user, can help. If you see something, such as a downed tree or trail damage, we ask that you fill out a quick and easy conditions report. Once you click submit, your report will be sent directly to our trails crew.

A special COVID-19 page has been created on our website to help you navigate through these uncertain times.
