Severe Weather
In the event of severe weather or emergency conditions, patrons participating in any Parks & Recreation program, athletic event or activity taking place at a Parks and Recreation Facility should take immediate cover from the possible impending emergency.

Any Parks & Recreation event shall be postponed or cancelled at the first sight of lightning or the sound of thunder at the activity site. If it is anticipated that the storm will pass, the activity may be resumed no sooner than 30 minutes after the last sight of lightning or the last sound of thunder.

In the event of severe and/or prolonged weather, Parks & Recreation facilities (including swimming pools) will close until it is deemed safe for them to re-open. An event may be canceled at the discretion of the Parks and Recreation Department due to weather. In this case, it is the event planners responsibility to contact the Parks and Recreation Department to either request a refund or to reschedule the event.
