Our eSports leagues have begun! The Parks & Recreation Department has partnered with Mission Control to bring recreational eSports opportunities to our community. Mission Control manages the league schedules, validates scores, and determines the champion while serving as a community forum for leagues members and friends. Five leagues began play on December 28, with 36 players, ages 13+, playing Rocket League and Mario Kart (all games are available on multiple platforms, including Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo and PC). The initial pilot program is FREE , with new leagues and games debuting in the coming months.
Great news, playgrounds are back OPEN! To Stay Safe, Play Safe, please review playground use guidelines below. Have fun out there!
As a reminder, all City parks and open space, including dog parks, are open for recreational use. Please take care to wear a face covering, observe social distancing and visit these spaces only with your household. Walking, hiking and enjoying nature are still recommended activities during the pandemic, as long as they are done safely.
