In addition to the information below, we ask that you keep an eye out for programming opportunities at our "Sunnyside Community Center" Facebook page, and glance at our City webpage.

Sunnyside community – we understand the weather is getting warmer and with schools closed and people away from work because of the COVID -19 virus many of you are using City park facilities. 

We love seeing you active and enjoying the outdoors however one thing we would like to caution you on is the use of playgrounds and athletic areas such as basketball courts.  We know playgrounds are something that kids gravitate towards when they are out of school however, we would like to promote more ‘movement’ activities such as walking, jogging, or biking which are activities more suited towards social distancing.

Our playgrounds are not wiped down and cleaned to standards that would be considered sanitized in between all the use.


We want to remind you of this and ask that you continue to use judgement when using our park facilities. Keeping parks open for people to enjoy is our priority, please make sure you are doing your part in keeping our parks safe.
