COVID-19 Closure Updates

The Kirkwood Community Center and Kirkwood Ice Arena are currently closed to all activities. 

All Kirkwood parks remain open, but playgrounds, restrooms and Tennis/Pickleball/Racquetball/Handball/Basketball courts are closed, they are high touch facilities and are closed to limit the spread of COVID - 19.

The facilities will be closed until further notice as we continue to monitor the situation and learn of any additional information as it becomes available from St. Louis County, the State of Missouri and or the federal government. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this difficult time.
