Dowdy Park Playgrounds (OPEN 7 days a week) Summerville Recreation Center Playgrounds (OPEN 7 days a week) Fairway Playgrounds (OPEN 7 days a week)
Summerville Recreation Center Tennis Courts (OPEN 7 – days a week)
The Recreation Department plans to post signs at the tennis court area asking everyone to observe social distancing and to not gather in groups under the tennis court pavilion.
Summerville Recreation Center Baseball/Softball Fields* (OPEN 7 days a week) Fairway Baseball Field* (OPEN 7 days a week)
*(Baseball Fields for local participant use only) *
The Recreation Department will open the baseball/softball fields at the main recreation center on Hwy 100 and at Fairway on a first come, first serve basis. We will not be reserving fields for individual use until we are able to resume our programs. The Department plans to post signs at each field encouraging people to practice social distancing and to not gather in groups on the bleachers or in the dugouts.
Fairway Outdoor Basketball Courts
“After polling other departments, outside basketball courts are being opened with either a hands off approach or are being scheduled out on a per use basis. Given the location and the amount of normal traffic on our courts, our recommendation would be to allow a maximum of 6 people on the courts, and for participants to be scheduled in two-hour blocks throughout the day starting at 9 am and ending at 5 pm. Wayne Perry would handle those reservations at the Fairway Recreation Center,” Parks and Recreation Director Bo Chamlee said.
