InForum News Brief FSA

MOORHEAD — In accordance with guidance from the state of Minnesota, the Moorhead Parks and Recreation Department announced Friday that certain parks and recreational facilities will reopen.

Current guidance allows for groups of no more than 10 people, so long as a six-foot radius can be maintained.

All 45 of Moorhead's parks, along with 44.5 miles of bicycle and pedestrian trails are now open. Restrooms and drinking fountains will not be open, and visitors are asked to bring their own water if desired.

Playgrounds will be open, but the city will not sanitize equipment and encourages visitors to bring their own sanitizing products. The following programs are also now open:

  • Recreation programs with no more than 10 participants
  • Athletic fields, with prior approval from the Parks and Recreation Department
  • Canoe and kayak individual rentals (participants are encouraged to provide their own lifejackets)
  • Youth tennis lessons
  • Outdoor pickleball
  • Moorhead Farmers Market
  • Tae Kwon Do in the park
  • Junior golf lessons

The city also anticipates that a baseball skills camp will take place in July if state guidance permits. Virtual recreation programs are in development as well.
To comply with Gov. Tim Walz's Executive Order 20-56 , swimming and wading pools will not be open in 2020.
