BV Recreation COVID-19 Update

We are working on a phased approach to reopening our facilities and programming this summer season. We hope to offer as much of our typical summer programming as we can, but we will only operate under guidelines that will allow us to recreate safely. Most programs will likely be modified and have a delayed start if we are able to offer them. Stay tuned for more updates and additional information.   

 The following town facilities are OPEN with posted guidelines and restrictions: 

 The Buena Vista Dog Park

Pump Track

Tennis, Pickleball, and Basketball Courts (not to exceed 25 people at any time)

Skate Park (not to exceed 25 people at any time)

Disc Golf Course

Town Trail System

Town Fields and General Park Areas

Pavilion and Picnic Areas (limited to groups of 25 with social distancing)

All Play Structures – Columbine Park, Community Center Park, McPhelemy Park, Millie Crymble Park, Rocks and Ropes Park, South Main Town Square Boulders (limited to groups of 25 with social distancing)

 *Permitted usage in these spaces does not include any activities that would violate the six-foot distance requirements, large group gatherings, or activities that would involve the sharing of any equipment.

   Please come prepared with your own personal supplies including hand sanitizer and wipes. We appreciate your efforts to keep our parks, trails, and facilities clean and free of trash and dog waste.


The Splash Park Water Feature, BV Community Center, and some restroom facilities remain closed to the public. Please avoid congregating in large groups and try to recreate with your immediate family or housemates. Expect limited services and bring your own hand sanitizer, water. Most importantly be safe and have some FUN.

We recently received guidelines from state and local health officials for operating recreational programs and team sports. We are currently working to finalize the schedule and details of our summer offerings. We will release program information and open registration as soon as possible. Additionally, many events and facility rentals are further postponed until at least mid-June. We will reassess future rentals and events in the near future.

 Due to COVID-19 related complications, we have disabled our online booking and reservation system for all town parks, pavilions, fields, and Community Center facilities.  Please contact our Facilities and Events Specialist at 719-581-1029 to talk with us directly about your reservation.  Thank you!
