Pleasanton River Park to reopen Sept. 25
Following Gov. Greg Abbott’s announcement yesterday to reopen Texas businesses at 75% capacity on Monday, Sept. 21, the City of Pleasanton has announced their updated Facilities Reopening Plan. Originally, the city was set to reopen its facilities, including the Pleasanton River Park, on Oct. 1, pending any rises in COVID-19 cases with school starting again.
“Due to the Governor’s announcement [Thursday], we have moved up the date for the opening of our city park, sports complex and civic center, which will now be Friday, Sept. 25,” said Pleasanton Mayor Travis Hall. “The reason we don’t do that any sooner, obviously, is because city staff and our employees have to have time to prepare.”
The city’s reopening plan is as follows:
- Individuals must wear a face mask upon entering all city facilities.
- Pleasanton River Park and Sports Complex
- Pavilion rentals will now resume;
- All recreational leagues to resume;
- Sport field rentals will re-open to the public
- Civic Center
- Main Hall rental to reopen at 75% capacity;
- Meeting room rentals to reopen at 75% capacity, and;
- Zumba and yoga classes to resume.
- Municipal Court
- Only one person allowed in the lobby, and;
- Court hearings will remain suspended until further notice.
- Library will now operate at 75% capacity;
- All patrons will be required to sign in;
- Children’s area will remain closed;
- Study rooms to remain closed, and ;
- Only half of the public computers will remain open;
- Public computers will be sanitized after each use.
- Curbside services will continue.
- Longhorn Museum
- The museum will now operate at 75% capacity;
