***Parks Update*** Effective immediately, Avondale parks will resume normal operating hours from 5:00 a.m. – 11: 00 p.m. All park amenities are now open to residents to use at their own risk, with the exception of the splash pads. The splash pads at Festival Fields and Friendship Park will be open to the public starting Friday, May 22nd. Picnic ramada reservations are now available with restrictions. The number of patrons will be limited to approximately half of normal capacity to allow for safe physical distance. Field reservations, with restrictions, will tentatively resume June 1. All physical distancing guidelines recommended by the CDC will apply in these areas and updated signage is being placed throughout the parks.
The mission of the Avondale Parks and Recreation Department is simple... making lives better with dynamic services and spaces to learn, play, and connect. We envision the department enriching the Avondale community through learning and recreational opportunities that reflect our vitality and diversity. All of this in clean, green, and safe parks.
