PAFC COVID-19 General Information

Construction continues at the City Play fields.
The trail around the play fields remains CLOSED.

Below is additional information on the current impacts to the Parks & Recreation programs and facilities. Most of our Parks & Recreation programs and offerings require Phase 3 and 4 status to become operational. Until that time, please be safe and #RecreateResponsibly.

Find our current programs and activities  listed here and register for programs here.

Department Health Safety COVID-19 protocols for participants can be found under Department Downloads.

Current impacts to Parks & Recreation:

Parks, trails, and natural areas: These spaces are accessible, while practicing social distancing. Amenities like softball/baseball fields, tennis/pickleball courts, disc golf course, and park shelters are all accessible, but gatherings are limited to 10 or fewer people. Special Event Permits (needed for group events over 100 people) are not currently available. 

Play Structures: Playgrounds are open! Please keep in mind that we don’t routinely sanitize play equipment, picnic tables, and similar amenities, so continue to use CDC precautions to avoid the spread of germs. We hope you continue to enjoy park spaces!

Restrooms: Restrooms in the parks are currently closed. Unfortunately, we do not have the resources to disinfect multiple times per day throughout our City parks. Currently, our Parks & Facilities department hasn’t hired any seasonal staff and we are doing our best to care for park properties in ways that ensure visitor safety, garbage removal, and asset protection. We apologize, and ask that as much as possible, to please “go before you go.”

Aquatics: The Pullman Aquatic & Fitness Center is currently open with limited programs and hours. With social distancing and safety requirements in place the facility is open from 6:00 am-6:00 pm. Reservations are required to access the facility and showers are currently closed. See our Aquatics page for more details on opening protocols. Due to the uncertain nature and timing of re-opening facilities, limited staffing, and budget impacts from COVID-19, Reaney pool will remain closed for the season.

Senior Center: The Pullman Senior Center is currently closed. Due to the high-risk population the Senior Center serves, we are uncertain at this time when it will open for activities. We will continue to monitor and evaluate information from the Washington State Department of Health, Center for Disease Control and Prevention, along with our regional partners and will share updates as they become available.

Next steps:
We appreciate the patience and understanding of our citizens as we are all adapting as a community during this unprecedented time. We will continue to follow the recommendations of local and state public health experts in collaboration with the City of Pullman leadership. As the situation and information evolves, we will continue to communicate changes about Parks & Recreation programs and facilities.
