Lawrence Parks and Recreation facilities won’t be reopening from their pandemic-induced shutdown on the previously scheduled date of May 18, the city said Friday in a news release.
The city’s Parks and Recreation department originally closed its facilities in March by order of the Lawrence-Douglas County health department. A new date for reopening hasn’t been released, but the city said in its release Friday that it was preparing a phased reopening plan for all city facilities and would be releasing it “as soon as possible.”

Ninth St.; the Union Pacific Depot, 402 N. Second St.; and the Santa Fe Train Station, 413 E. Seventh St. Eagle Bend Golf Course was initially closed, but has since reopened.
