LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - Until further notice, Clark County is closing all Parks and Recreation facilities due to continuing concerns about the spread of coronavirus.

At this time, outdoor park spaces will remain open to the public, although any visitors are strongly encouraged to follow health officials’ recommendations regarding social distancing and other precautions  https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prepare/prevention.html.

Clark County operates 63 community centers and recreation facilities. A complete list of addresses and locations is listed on the Parks and Recreation Department’s website at: https://www.clarkcountynv.gov/parks/Pages/default.aspx.

“These closures will help protect the public, our workers and their families from unnecessary risk,” County Parks and Recreation Department Director Daniel Hernandez said. “We understand the impacts of these steps and will look to reopen these facilities as soon as health officials determine we may do so safely.”

During the closures, additional measures will be taken to do some proactive cleaning of counters, work stations and computer labs during the closure. Clark County has taken this step, in addition to recent cancellations of events and activities, out of an abundance of caution to help reduce the possibility of community spread of the virus. General inquiries about event and program cancellations can be directed to the Clark County Parks and Recreation Department at (702) 455-8200. Contact the department’s Sports Office for information about sports leagues by phone at (702) 455-8241 or email: ccprssports@clarkcountynv.gov.
