Recreation Program Update as of April 3, 2020
For City of Pittsfield Park Special Events
Special event permit applications will not be accepted until May 15 and only for events scheduled to take place after July 1. Applications that have already been received, will be not acted on until after May 15.
For City of Pittsfield Athletics
As we all know, school is now out until at least May 4th and multiple event/programs continue to be cancelled/postponed. As we are practicing social distancing and avoiding bringing together groups, the City has closed playgrounds, basketball courts and active playing fields and made them off-limits until further notice. We will share additional information as it becomes available.
To reiterate what has been said before, we are all in this together during this difficult time and will work together the best we can to get past this.

Additional restrictions in place for City of Pittsfield parks
As part of the City of Pittsfield’s ongoing mitigation efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19 , city basketball and tennis courts are now closed, as well as the skate park on East Street.
While the parks are still open for passive use, parking restrictions are also in effect at several parks throughout the city including Kirvin, Fred Garner, Deming, Belanger, and the north lot at Burbank Park. Visitors should maintain a distance of six feet from other people while enjoying these spaces.
These restrictions are in effect until further notice. Park usage will continue to be monitored and additional protective measures may be added if determined to be necessary.
Residents across the state can now sign up to receive updates, news and prevention information related to COVID-19 by texting COVIDMA to 888-777.
This is a challenging time, and with everyone’s help we can work together to get past this.
We will share additional information as it becomes available.
The Recreation Program provides a variety of enjoyable, affordable events, programs and opportunities throughout the year for the Pittsfield community. It is also dedicated to being a resource in providing athletics information to community members for programs in the City.
