    Parks & Recreation Facilities, Programs & Special Events

    To align with state and county orders, the Pittsburg Parks & Recreation Department is limiting the use of some park facilities, modifying summer programs and cancelling special events. Click here for details. For questions, please call (620) 231-8310 or email pprd@pittks.org

     

    Parks & Trails

    Under the current stay-at-home order, open spaces and walking trails are recommended to remain open, and the use of these areas is considered an “essential activity” — as long as the appropriate 6-foot distance is maintained between individuals and gatherings do not exceed the state limit of 10 people.

    The Pittsburg Parks & Recreation Department strongly urges the public to refrain from using any playground equipment during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

    Under the order to stay at home, open spaces and walking trails will remain open because the use of these areas is important for exercise and recreation, as long as no more than 10 people are gathered. Park users must follow social distancing instructions to stay at least 6 feet apart from each other. Signage is posted in parks stating these restrictions and advising against the use of equipment.
