Winter Weather Cancellations

Program cancellations due to winter weather weekday programs:

Appleton Parks and Recreation (APRD) follows the Appleton Area School District (AASD) when canceling programs due to weather. When the AASD closes school for the day, the APRD programs for that day and evening* are also cancelled. If the AASD has a two hour delay, the APRD will cancel only the morning programs.


Saturday and Sunday programs: Please call the APRD hotline at 920-832-3900, press 1 for cancellation updates. Weather that worsens throughout the day: Cancellations are posted on the APRD hotline:

920-832-3900, press 1. Please check the hotline for cancellation updates and do not call the APRD office. If the program is not canceled on the hotline, it is in session. Program attendance is at your discretion as safe travel is based on travel within the City of Appleton.


*Note: Ice rink and sledding hill warming shelters may open as scheduled for the evening, even if the APRD canceled programs that day.
