  2. Additional Reopenings for Parks & Recreation

    The City of Jackson is responding to Governor Mike Parson’s Show-Me Strong Recovery Plan by taking additional steps to ensure the health of our community and staff.  Phase I of the Governor’s Plan expired yesterday (June 15) and Phase II is now underway; and so the City is continuing its slow but steady road to recovery as more parks and recreation facilities  reopened today.  Following recent recommendations from the Cape Girardeau County Health Center and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Parks & Recreation Department has announced the following changes and updates to summer programming.

    All programming, including leagues, swimming pool, and events, will have increased sanitation of equipment, and participants and spectators will be asked to honor social distancing when possible.  We recommend that the number of customers at sporting, music, and rental events is limited to help follow social distancing guidelines.  If you have a pavilion rental, please contact the Jackson Civic Center to learn about additional guidelines for your rental.

    Effective immediately, the Jackson Civic Center will operate without occupancy limits, but we are encouraging the practice of social distancing for the protection of guests and employees.  Indoor facilities will continue to have increased sanitation and games will be allowed.

    This week, baseball and softball leagues have resumed play and games will continue throughout the summer months.  Emphasis is being placed on social distancing guidelines as players and coaches enjoy two of our most popular sports.

    Beginning today, all playgrounds and basketball courts in Jackson City Parks have reopened.  This means that all outdoor park features are now open (see pool exceptions below).  Outdoor amenities will be sanitized on a limited basis.  We ask that customers honor social distancing when possible.

    The Jackson Municipal Swimming Pool opened to the public on Monday, June 8, and is operating 1:00 – 6:00 p.m. daily.  Look for changes in operations, social distancing requirements, increased sanitation, and a maximum pool capacity of 147 (operating at 50% capacity).  For more information, please contact the pool by calling 573-243-8343.

    The Rockin’ the Rock Garden free summer concert series began on Friday, June 5 in the City Park and we ask that guests honor social distancing when attending.  Follow the @Jacksonmissouricitypark Facebook page for details.

    The Jackson Municipal Band started their performance season on Thursday, June 11, at the Nick Leist Band Shell.  The musicians are practicing social distancing during their performances and we ask that guests honor social distancing when attending.  Follow the @Jacksonmunicipalband Facebook page for details.

    The Parks & Recreation Department will hold their annual Independence Day Celebration on Saturday, July 4th.  However, the event will be impacted with a number of activities canceled this year out of precaution due to COVID-19.  Planned daytime events include a car show cruise-in display and food vendors.  Evening activities will begin at 7:00 p.m. with musical performances at the band shell, and fireworks are scheduled at 9:30 p.m. to conclude the event.

    Customers and visitors to indoor and outdoor park amenities should acknowledge that there is a risk of exposure to COVID-19 when entering a public facility, and participation is at your own risk.  If you have been sick in the past two weeks, avoid entry into public facilities.

    All updates will be posted on www.jacksonmo.org and our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/jacksonmo.

    As Missouri reopens, we ask that you please remember the virus isn't over.

    - Stay 6' apart or more in public

    ·    - Wear masks (cover nose/mouth) to protect others

    ·    - Wash hands, surfaces, and common items regularly

    The City of Jackson’s responsibility is to help keep our residents safe and provide vital services.  Thank you for your continued patience and cooperation.
