Courthouse Square Park

The playgrounds at Andrew Smith and Courthouse Square Parks are open, however, in communities where there is ongoing spread of COVID-19, playgrounds can be hard to keep safe because:

  • They are often crowded and could make social distancing difficult;
  • It can be difficult to keep surfaces clean and disinfected;
  • SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, can spread when young children touch contaminated objects, and then touch their eyes, nose, or mouth.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advise that you carefully consider use of playgrounds, and help children follow guidelines. If you choose to visit a playground:

  • Maintain a distance of at least 6 feet away from people you don’t live with.
  • Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds 
    • Adults and older children who can safely use hand sanitizer: Use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol and rub hands together until dry, if soap and water are not readily available.
  • Wear a cloth face covering, if you can. Cloth face coverings should not be placed on: 
    • Children under age 2;
    • Anyone who has trouble breathing;
    • Anyone who is unconscious, can’t move, or is otherwise unable to remove the cloth face covering without assistance.

Free Wi-Fi in the Park

As part of the Dayton Friday Night series, Online NW is providing free of charge Wi-Fi service, as part of their commitment to the Dayton Community. 

Online NW, in partnership with the Dayton community and the School District, helped launch innovate Dayton last year, a strategic initiative to create new economic opportunity for the community.  As a critical piece of this initiative, Online NW built in Dayton the fastest internet network on the West Coast and put in place a profit sharing agreement to provide seed funding for new innovation projects.  This fund is being used to help students working in the school's new i3 Center, one of the first centers of it's kind in the United States. 

Courthouse Square Park is a non-smoking, non-vaping and/or tobacco free facility.  Smoking and the use of tobacco and tobacco type devices are prohibited in and around all Dayton Public Parks.  The Dayton City Council passed Ordinance 625 which prohibits smoking and tobacco use in all public parks as of June 1, 2015.  For more information see Section 2.10.2 of the Dayton Municipal Code.
