BV Recreation programming update during the covid-19 pandemic

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.

  • All recreation programs are currently suspended due to the COVID-19 outbreak. 
  • We are currently finalizing a plan to offer as much of our summer programming as possible, in a manner consistent with the recently released Colorado Public Health Guidelines for those programs. Under these guidelines, we will be permitted to offer outdoor camps or indoor camps in a gym for up to 25 campers in a group and indoor camps in a facility for up to 10 campers per group.
  • We have been using this time without programs to complete various projects like assisting with the repairs to the changing stations in the River Park. We have also been in frequent communication with recreation professionals around the state to gather more information to inform our decisions, as well as communicating with Salida Recreation to ensure consistency in our plans to offer programs this summer.

Get fit, have fun, and play in beautiful Buena Vista, Colorado!
