March 19, 2020, Jackson, Wyo. -- The Teton County/Jackson Parks & Recreation Department (TCJPR) would like to clarify service levels on multi-use fields, ball parks, pathways and parks within Teton County.
Based on direction from public officials, recommendations from the Teton County Public Health Officer and policies implemented by Parks & Recreation Department, the Parks Department will continue our basic service levels for ALL parks, pathways and spring field preparation, which includes: opening seasonal restrooms between April 15, 2020 and May 1, 2020; basic field & park preparation including turf care and charging of irrigation systems based on weather conditions; and limited field lining and infrastructure preparation. Staff’s goal is to have fields, parks, pathways and associated infrastructure safe, functional and accessible for individual and small group use if the public chooses to access those areas. Parks & Recreation may, at any point, change service levels based on Teton County School District #1 (TCSD) direction for fields on TCSD property, direction from elected officials or policy change within the Division.
Staff will increase cleaning and safety measures at TCSD facilities and within Teton County to ensure health guidelines from the Teton County Public Health Department are being met.
Currently TCJPR has suspended reservations for group athletic and special events of greater than 50 people and are discouraging any group gatherings within the parks, pathways and athletic fields. Staff will continue to take conditional reservations for future events after April 26, 2020 and reserves the right to cancel based on decisions from elected officials, TCSD or the director of Parks and Recreation.
These are the links to the basic service levels for fields and the seasonal restroom opening schedule.
