Please remember that even as we begin to resume activities in our parks and facilities that social distancing, wearing a face covering while in public, and personal hygiene remains the most important aspects of keeping yourself and others safe. We strongly encourage all residents to assist us in the safe use of our parks and facilities so that they can remain open!

Please continue to follow updates through this page and our Department’s other social media outlets for the latest information.

What’s currently open?

  • All Parks facilities (Bartlett Recreation Center, Bartlett Senior Center, and Singleton Community Center) are open for members only with some restrictions including limited capacity and reservation requirements for some classes and activities.
  • All greenways, parks, park restrooms, and walking paths remain open.
  • Playgrounds are all open! Please continue to observe social distancing from others outside of your household.

What’s still closed?

  • Water fountains at parks are closed per Shelby County Health Department Health Directive #15.

  • While traditional, large-scale special events sponsored by the Parks Department will not be offered through the remainder of 2020, our Department is working hard to provide creative alternatives for the fall and winter holidays!

The Fletcher Creek Greenway: Phase 2 installation is progressing and is approximately 85% completed. Paving is currently underway and should be completed by mid-November. If you're not familiar with the location of this future expansion, the parking lot is at the corner of Yale Road and Brother Boulevard.
