Dickinson Parks and Recreation is in the people business. Thousands of people come through our facilities doors each day and our leagues and programs see hundreds of people a day. We wouldn’t have anything if we didn’t have you, and because of that, your health and safety is our highest priority.
Dickinson Parks and Recreation administration has been closely following and monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. We’re actively using the information distributed by the WHO and CDC, and working with local health authorities to educate ourselves and our staff on what we can do to stop and contain the spread of this virus. We also want to update you on the steps we’re taking to ensure your well-being and ask you for your help in preventing the spread of the virus.
