Reduced Service Levels

Boulder Parks and Recreation is excited about the programs and places it will provide to support the health and wellness of the entire Boulder community. At the same time, the past year has taken a toll on our ability to recreate, socialize, and enjoy the benefits of physical activity.

For Parks and Recreation, it has resulted in deep reductions to funding, staffing, and facility visitation levels.

Parks and Recreation services levels this summer will be reduced so that resources can be focused on services that safely deliver the broadest community benefit possible.  Learn more
