Cedar Rapids Playgrounds and Outdoor Exercise Stations Closed

For the health and safety of the public, due to COVID-19, the City of Cedar Rapids is temporarily closing playgrounds and outdoor exercise stations in parks. Parks, trails and dog parks will remain open. The City asks the community to follow CDC guidelines and state recommendations pertaining to COVID-19 when using park facilities. The following are a list of recommendations:

  • Follow social distancing standards of a minimum of six feet between you and other park users.
  • Avoid areas where 10 or more people are gathered.
  • Do not use park amenities where social distancing cannot be followed.
  • Be aware that park restrooms are currently closed and water is not turned on. Please bring hand sanitizer with you.
  • Please carry out any trash that is brought into the parks.
  • If you have been sick in the last two weeks or have a cough, fever or other flu like symptoms, stay home for your health and the safety of others.
  • Individuals 60 years of age and older, or those with underlying conditions, should stay at home to avoid potential exposures.

Cedar Rapids has over 97 parks and trails on over 4,171 acres of land. The Parks and Recreation Department urges the public to explore smaller parks that are less congested when they go out. A complete list of parks with amenities is available at www.CityofCR.com/ParksFinder.
