All parks in the City of Miami opened on Monday as part of the gradual reactivation plan implemented following the crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic. But even though people can enjoy these facilities, they must comply with health, safety and use restrictions.

City authorities reported that while more than two dozen of the largest parks opened for limited use in May, most had remained closed to help prevent further spread of COVID-19.

The restart of park operations occurs at a time when the state of Florida is in phase 3 of the economic reopening and when Miami-Dade County has a low rate of positive coronavirus cases of 4.26%.

Parks will operate from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

People must wear masks or face covers at all times, restrict their activities, and be close to people in their own home only, with limited and specific exceptions.

Volleyball courts remain closed, as well as playgrounds and outdoor exercise areas, recreation centers, as well as activities and programs within the parks.

The use of water sources is “strictly prohibited” and bathrooms in the parks remain closed.

As for organized activities, the City of Miami indicated that sports games, birthday parties and barbecues are kept “strictly prohibited”.

WHAT IS ALLOWED?

These are the organized activities allowed only if the organizer has obtained a permit from the Miami City Department of Parks and Recreation:

▪ Sports: Organizing entities should limit a defined “group” of a coach and nine or fewer children for training and maintain separate groups in their activities. Permission is required for this activity to begin.

▪ Fitness Classes: Permissions will be issued, but fitness classes must be from an instructor and nine or fewer participants, and with an approved permit only hours, locations, and days are defined. Without a permit, the activity will not be allowed.

6-foot social distancing is mandatory during class and practice sessions.

Participants must wear masks until the time of participation.

▪ Tennis and racquetball will be open to the doubles game, and will no longer be limited to singles play alone.

The following two Miami City Parks facilities will remain closed until further notice to prevent the spread of COVID-19: Domino Park and Billy Rolle Park. In addition, E.G. Sewell Park will remain closed until further notice pending construction work on park upgrades.

Since May, fewer than 30 Miami parks have been open to the public during the pandemic, affecting more than 100 parks in the city.
