[ARCHIVED] All Recreational Equipment Within City Parks

Please see information below pertaining to the Leisure Services Departmental Impacts and Closures during the COVID-19 pandemic.


Outdoor Playgrounds:  The City of Dubuque’s outdoor playgrounds will remain CLOSED at this time. Due to playgrounds being high-touch surfaces, the requirement is that they must be sanitized once daily. The costs of sanitizing are being determined at this time.

Tennis, Pickleball and Horseshoe Courts:  The City of Dubuque’s tennis and pickleball courts are OPEN for public use (re-opened on Wednesday, June 3rd).  Horseshoe pits at Eagle Point Park and Flora Park will also be available for use.

Basketball and Volleyball Courts:  Governor Reynolds’ proclamation still prohibits these non-school sporting or recreational activities. City courts will remain CLOSED with hoops and nets down to prohibit the activity per the proclamation.

The Leisure Services Department Adult Softball, Volleyball Leagues and Summer Basketball Leagues have been CANCELED for the 2020 summer season.    

Park restrooms, water fountains and other amenities are not yet accessible to the public.  Residents are welcome to visit parks and trails, but should practice physical/social distancing of at least six feet as instructed by the Centers for Disease Control and wash their hands as soon as possible after use.
