“As you can imagine, these reopenings require extensive research and planning to follow evolving State and local Board of Health guidelines. The team has done an excellent job to make sure the facilities adhere to the rules put in place, and that our staff members are fully educated in what is required to maintain a clean and safe environment. The community needs to know that there will be instances when we all sacrifice some conveniences in an effort to procure health and safety and that when we re-open, operations will be different than what we’re used to,” said Parks and Recreation Director Brian Kruse. “We appreciate everyone’s patience as we slowly work back into a sense of normalcy that we all look forward to and begin to once again enjoy our great public spaces.”

The Blue Ash Parks and Recreation Department wishes to thank everyone for their patience and understanding as staff continues to work on plans in anticipation of State and Health Department guidance to reopen the following:

  • Cooper Creek Event Center
  • Room/shelter rentals
  • Playgrounds
  • Summit Park Observation Tower
  • Summer Concert Series and other events
