Parks & Recreation
Battle Ground Parks & Recreation is responding to the COVID-19 public health emergency and related federal, state and city directives in order to ensure the health, safety and well-being of the community and our staff.
The Battle Ground Community & Senior Centers are temporarily closed to the public and are reschedule to re-open during phase 3 of Washington State’s Safe Start plan.
We understand that it is not easy to put life events, meetings and community gatherings on hold. Although we are not certain as to when our facilities will reopen, we continue to work with customers whose confirmed facility rentals were/are impacted by the closure.
We are happy to accept new rental applications for future dates, but new applications will not be processed until the facility reopens. At that time, these applications will be processed in the order they were received.
We are available to assist anyone who had scheduled events that have now been impacted by the closure. Please contact us by phone at 360-342-5380 or online.
All City playground structures, sport courts and picnic tables re-open with phase 2 of Washington State’s Safe Start plan
Splash Pads will open in Phase 3.
The Skate & Bike Park will re-open when the safe start plan allows for as many as 50 people to gather. Bathroom facilities will remain closed until further notice.
Playground structures, sports courts and picnic tables within Battle Ground City Parks have officially reopened. Clark County was approved to move into Phase 2 of Washington State’s Safe Start Plan on June 5.
Phase 2 allows outdoor recreation with no more than 5 people. The city’s Splash Pads are scheduled to open in Phase 3 and the Skate & Bike Park is scheduled to open when the Safe Start plan allows for as many as 50 people. Bathrooms will remain closed as well.
The city will be sanitizing playground structures twice weekly. However, park users should always use discretion when using playground equipment and other common-use structures. Safety and prevention practices such as using hand sanitizer before and after using equipment, maintaining physical distancing, and avoiding large gatherings should be used. Wash your hands frequently and stay home if you are sick.
Park open spaces have remained open and accessible for community use throughout the COVID-19 public health emergency. We appreciate the care the community has taken in physically distancing and keeping parks free of trash. Please continue to do so to keep Battle Ground safe and healthy.
