Recreation Centers provide a comprehensive menu of activities and events for all ages and abilities to come together, connect with each other and create community through various experiences.

Summer Program Registration Postponement

Due to the unknown, future status of COVID-19 infections and vaccine distribution, summer programming for both Austin Parks and Recreation Department's (PARD) summer camps and aquatic (pool) programming is delayed. 

Typically, registration for summer camps begins in February and aquatic (pool) programming in April. While the distribution of a COVID-19 vaccine continues to evolve and provide hope for the future, the unknown length of the local Stage 5 Risk declaration provides uncertainty as it relates to summer program planning.

The postponement allows PARD, in cooperation with the Austin Public Health Department, to consider the local characteristics of the virus as vaccine distribution evolves. At the appropriate local Risk Stage, PARD can offer in-person programs safely; however, this timeframe is not yet known. Delaying registration until there is a path forward for the safe delivery of programming can eliminate concerns related to program cancelations and refunds.

At this time, PARD has not determined new registration dates for summer programs. PARD intends to notify families prior to registration dates to allow ample preparation time. PARD continues to work closely with state and local health authorities to make operational decisions that ensure both the health and safety of participants, families, and PARD employees.

PARD continues to offer free, virtual lesson plans and activities that families can access on PARD's YouTube channel - youtube.com/austincityparks. Updates on summer programming will be released as conditions change. 

 

​​​​​​Per the COVID-19 Mayoral declaration, the Center is closed  to the public effective Monday, March 16th .  Please check the Closure page for update.
