COVID-19 Closure Updates

St. Louis County has issued guidance for some businesses to begin reopening on May 18. According to the guidance, Recreation facilities, programs and events are all still deemed high risk and therefore must remain closed. This currently affects Kirkwood Community Center, Ice Arena, Aquatic Center, playgrounds, and all indoor and outdoor events and programs. St. Louis County did not give any specific date on when these types of facilities and programs may be able to resume or when they will re-evaluate. Our parks remain open for walking, biking and open space play with families in the same household. Please continue to Social Distance.

Support your favorite park

Pretty Tree for webFriends, families, and organizations can adopt a park (or an area within a park) to provide general care.

Adopt-A-Park responsibilities vary based upon the needs of each park, however, volunteers typically weed, plant flowers, litter clean up, or adopters may suggest their own service projects. The Parks Department provides some supplies like yard waste bags while volunteers bring their own gardening hand tools. Scroll through the supporting documents to learn more  about adopting your favorite park.
