[ARCHIVED] City of Victoria reopens playgrounds, skate park, splash pads

Park Playground

The City of Victoria Parks and Recreation will reopen playgrounds and the Victoria Skate Park to the public Friday, June 5, in line with Governor Greg Abbott’s new executive order issued Wednesday that lifted restrictions on interactive amenities.

Splash pads are scheduled to open Monday, June 8, giving staff time to check systems and perform any necessary maintenance.

The swimming pool at the Barbara Bauer Briggs YMCA will reopen June 13th.

Residents who visit these facilities are strongly encouraged to follow guidelines issued by the Department of State Health Services to prevent the spread of COVID-19. These include wearing cloth facial coverings, avoiding groups of more than ten people and maintaining six feet of social distancing from those outside of one’s group. People over the age of 65 should be especially cautious and avoid public places if possible.

For more information, call 361-485-3200.
