The McAllen Parks & Recreation Department takes the health and safety of our community as a top priority. The City of McAllen has been and will continue to closely monitor information about the coronavirus (COVID-19) and recommendations from health officials to ensure every precaution is taken for the continued safety of our patrons.
In support of those recommendations, effective Monday, June 29th, all regularly scheduled McAllen Parks & Recreation Department Community Center programs will be suspended until further notice, including senior living, youth, and adult programs. The McAllen Nature Center will be closed until further notice and athletic & aquatic facilities will remain closed. In the meantime, department staff will remain prepared to welcome back all of our participants as soon as it is deemed appropriate.
COVID-19 SAFETY MEASURES
We continue to strongly urge citizens to take precautions to protect their health and safety such as frequently washing their hands for at least 20 seconds, avoid touching their faces with unwashed hands, and covering their noses and mouths when sneezing or coughing.
All City of McAllen parks and public restrooms will remain open. Patrons are encouraged to continue visiting our parks, as regular exercise is essential to physical and mental well-being. Due to the evolving nature of COVID-19, the City of McAllen is constantly monitoring conditions at all parks to determine if any adjustments are needed to ensure the safety of our parks and surrounding communities.
We also encourage residents to continue to check the City of McAllen at www.mcallen.net, Hidalgo County Health & Human Services Department, and Centers for Disease Control websites for the most up-to-date information and guidance.
