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 facilities are OPEN to local residents:
The Buena Vista Dog Park
Tennis, Pickleball, and Basketball Courts
Disc Golf Course
Town Trail System
Town Fields and General Park Areas
*Permitted usage in these spaces does not include any activities that would violate the six-foot distance requirements, group gatherings or activities that would involve the sharing of any equipment.
The following facilities remain CLOSED:
All Play Structures at:
Community Center Park
Millie Crymble Park
Rocks and Ropes Park
South Main Town Square Boulders
All Pavilions and Picnic Areas:

Buena Vista’s in-town open spaces and trails remain open to residents of Buena Vista and Chaffee County, but all playgrounds and pavilions are currently closed. Please avoid congregating in groups and only recreate with your immediate family or housemates. Expect limited services and bring your own hand sanitizer. Most importantly be safe and have some FUN.
Additionally, BV Rec programs, Community Center rentals, and events are further postponed until at least June 1st. We will reassess future programming, rentals, and events as June 1st approaches.
