Brevard County reopens playgrounds, offers limited summer camps
By Chris Bonanno
Playgrounds at all Brevard County parks - with the exception of Wickham Park, have reopened.
The playgrounds were sanitized prior to reopening, according to Shay Saldana, Parks and Recreation spokeswoman. She said they will continue to be sanitized twice a week.
“They’re going to be sanitized at all different times,” she said.
Saldana also said the department is recommending that people practice social distancing at the parks.
Wickham Park’s playground was not yet open because new playground equipment was being installed there. The playground is expected to open as soon as the work is completed.
Parks and Recreation also announced Monday that it would offer summer camp to those ages 6 to11 years old at community centers beginning on June 15 with priority being given to parents returning to work.
“The parent has to supply an employee note, basically saying that they’re working,” Saldana said.
There is limited spacing based on space in the community centers, she added.
Activities will follow CDC guidelines, according to a release from BCPR. There will be no field trips. Additionally, children will be in groups of nine or fewer.
The cost to register a child for a week is $90 and $45 for those in certain neighborhood areas.
Those interested in more information or registering should visit brevardparks.org, though registration will also be accepted over the phone and in person.
