Metro Parks to open two additional community centers, expand service to all ages in second phase

Metro Arts Center and Wilderness Road Senior Center are expected to reopen and will join the other 10 community centers that reopened in late March.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The second phase of reopening Metro Parks and Recreation community centers is set to begin Monday.

Metro Arts Center and Wilderness Road Senior Center are expected to reopen and will join the other 10 community centers that reopened in late March.

The centers are expected to open to residents of all ages from Monday through Thursday from noon to 9 p.m. an on Fridays from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Officials said their reopening protocols include mandatory masks, temperature checks and capacity limits for each center.

“We are excited to continue our phased reopening approach and safely welcome more participants back into our community centers,” Ben Johnson, assistant director of Parks and Recreation, said in a news release. “I just want to remind people that we are still in a COVID environment so they will see some significant changes in how we operate and may not be able to participate in all of their favorite activities just yet.”

Since there will be capacity limits, officials want the public to call each center before making a visit.

Parks and Recreation are also accepting rentals for pavilions and shelters online starting Monday.
