Parks Department

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.

Dayton's Public Parks are maintained by the City of Dayton Public Works Staff.  If you observe a problem, please report it to the City of Dayton at
