Appleton Parks and Recreation takes the health and safety of our community seriously and we are actively monitoring COVID-19 developments. We have been and remain in close contact with the Appleton Health Department, who is closely monitoring the emerging and rapidly evolving COVID-19 situation. Based on recent conversations with City Leadership we do not feel comfortable proceeding with our fall aquatics programs that take place at East and West High Schools and include Open Swim, Lap Swim, and Swim Lessons. Key factors being we are unable to keep participants socially distanced and participants will not be masked while in the water creating risk for our employees, participants, and patrons. For those currently enrolled in programs, you will be receiving further communication so please stay tuned. Please note, all other fall program will take place as scheduled with safety protocols/guidelines in place.
