Beginning today, Indy Parks is expanding the schedule for its family centers and park facilities to include some weekend and evening hours. Park goers are encouraged to adhere to safety guidelines while enjoying these spaces, Indy Parks officials also said.
“We are expanding our hours without compromising the health and safety of visitors and staff alike,” said Indy Parks Director Linda Broadfoot. “Alongside creative programs and activities, park visitors will be reminded to follow social distancing as we limit the number of people inside our facilities and implement safety guidelines inside and out.”
Indy Parks’ meals program, which has served 156,908 free meals since March 16, will also move to its fall schedule at parks and other locations around the city. The program was expanded in March to meet the need of children and their families. Indy Parks serves more than 300,000 free meals throughout the school year and during the summer.
With summer pools scheduled to close after Aug. 2, Indy Parks will soon announce plans for its three indoor pools including the remodeled Indy Island pool. Spray grounds will remain open through Labor Day.
The Summer Concert and Movie series continues to provide a collection of drive-in movies, jazz, hip hop, funk, rhythm and blues, Latin, and folk performances.
