[ARCHIVED] Additional Parks & Rec Facilities CLOSED

The Town of South Kingstown has made the difficult decision to CLOSE, effective immediately, the following South Kingstown Parks and Recreation facilities; the South Kingstown Dog Park; the South Kingstown Skate Park; all athletic fields and basketball courts; and the Main Street Comfort Station. As a reminder, all playgrounds remain closed, all field use permits remain void, and all leagues, teams, and athletic clubs, and groups of more than five are prohibited from using municipal athletic fields. All other municipal parks remain open, however PLEASE be sure to practice good social distancing. The Parks and Recreation Department and the South Kingstown Police Department will be monitoring all municipal parks to ensure the closed facilities are not used and the ‘groups of no more than five’ mandate followed. Should it become apparent that residents are not following these rules, all parking lots to Town recreation sites will be closed. We recognize the importance of getting outside, getting fresh air, and getting exercise, however if appropriate social distancing and gathering limits are not followed, further park closures will need to occur. We appreciate the public’s understanding and cooperation during this difficult time. Please be advised that surfaces including but not limited to park benches and picnic tables at municipal park facilities that remain open are not being sanitized.
