Parks and Recreation delays, cancellations and closures

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, changes have been made to Parks and Recreation programs, events and facilities. See what’s open, closed for the season, canceled or delayed.


Most City outdoor spaces, including community gardens, canoe racks and Dwan Golf Course remain open. Bloomington parks offer residents places to stay active and connected to nature. To keep parks and other outdoor spaces open, accessible and safe, use them responsibly.

The Farmers Market will open as scheduled on June 13. While you’re there, pick up a Bloom-INGO card to play bingo during the Facebook live event that evening. 


Arts in the Parks will be delayed until at least July 1. The Summer Fete July event is canceled. It may be rescheduled to September.

Adult sports, youth sports, and athletic field and picnic rentals are currently delayed as a result of the governor’s order. 


Canceled programs include Adaptive Softball, Camp Kota, Dakota Language Camp, Mini View, River Rendezvous, Safety Boot Camp, Summer Adventure Playgrounds and The View.  


The Bloomington Family Aquatic Center, Bush Lake Beach and Hyland Greens Golf and Learning Center are closed for the season. Bloomington Ice Garden is closed until further notice. Creekside Community Center will remain closed through 2020.
