Blish Park will continue to be open to the public for recreational purposes. The play scape and bathroom facilities will remain closed at this time. Lifeguards will not be on duty early in the season. It is expected we will begin lifeguarding when adequate staffing, training, and safety practices meeting state standards are in place. Recreation staff will monitor the usage of our facilities and grounds for social distancing compliance.
