[ARCHIVED] Playground Reopening Plan

Playground Reopening Plan

The City has received approval from the St. Louis County Health Department to start opening playgrounds. In doing so, the City will take a phased approach in the openings and will start with the opening of the Heman Park Playground at 4:00 pm on Friday, September 18, 2020. Select playgrounds within the City are scheduled to be phased in for opening over the next several months.

City Maintenance Crews will be cleaning and/or disinfecting the Heman Park playground a minimum of three (3) times per week; However, to further help limit the risk of disease transmission: 1) The City will limit use of playground equipment to daylight hours only (7 AM to dusk, daily); 2) Will require the wearing of face masks with the exception on children at play; 3) Require that all users maintain a minimum of 6 feet of social distancing from others; and 4) Will encourage park patrons to use disposable disinfectant wipes or other suitable and commercially available/ registered disinfectant products to perform spot cleaning in areas of concern should they so desire.
