South Suburban is reopening the majority of its facilities and amenities in July. Please know we are committed to meeting and exceeding all government mandates to minimize the spread of COVID-19 for both participants and staff. Staff screen processes and additional disinfecting measures have been implemented.

Moving forward, we ask that you stay home if you are sick or exhibit symptoms, and follow all safety precautions and requirements. We encourage you to visit ssprd.org for the most up-to-date schedules, programs and class offerings. Thank you for allowing us to be part of your community, and we look forward to seeing you soon.

All Four Outdoor Pools Open July 1
All four outdoor South Suburban pools will be open July 1 on a reservation basis only. Franklin, Harlow and Holly pools were completely rebuilt this year and will feature new and improved amenities, including water slides, wading pools and shade structures. Cook Creek Pool has been open since June 15.

Welcome Back to the Rec Centers
All four of our recreation centers (Buck, Goodson, Lone Tree and Sheridan) are excited to welcome you back! They are open now for general workouts, aquatics offerings and drop-in group fitness classes. Reservations must be made in advance to use the facilities here.  Monthly and annual passes were activated June 15. All other passes (SilverSneakers, RenewActive, Silver&Fit) and punches are immediately available for use, including daily admission punches. Passes and punches are non-refundable. Monthly passes were paused upon facility closures and annual passes will be extended the same number of days facilities were closed.

Looking to get back on the field? South Suburban's youth and adult leagues are in full swing in July. Sign up for our softball, lacrosse, soccer or volleyball leagues.

Our licensed day camps are open for registration and there is something for everyone! Play your way at Adventure Day Camp at Family Sports Center, Club Goodson, Club Lone Tree, and Camp X-plosion at Goodson and Lone Tree Rec Centers.

Our fitness staff has compiled a few of our favorite classes that you can do at home with just a few modifications. Select the class, or classes, you want to take and complete all the information to participate. These classes are free and will not require any fee or admission class punch. Happy exercising!

  South Suburban Parks and Recreation Alerts Public to Graffiti’s Financial Impact                
  June 2015               
 

Graffiti is writing or drawings scribbled, scratched or sprayed illicitly on a wall or other surface in a public place. South Suburban Park and Recreation District is experiencing an uptick in graffiti throughout the District and wants to alert residents about the problem and the financial impact of graffiti removal.
 

In 2007, the District began tracking graffiti within its boundaries. Since then, the District has incurred 1,269 incidents for a cleanup cost of $301,145. Since Jan. 1, there have been 43 incidents District-wide. Time and money spent removing graffiti could have been spent on upkeep and enhancements to parks, trails, open space and facilities. Graffiti cleanup not only costs the District, but ultimately impacts those the District serves. South Suburban has installed security cameras in frequently-hit locations to help curb the problem; however, no area in the District is immune to this activity.

South Suburban wants the public’s help in reducing graffiti throughout the District. Remind your teenagers that graffiti is illegal, and those who are caught will be issued a citation and a bill for the cleanup costs. Subsequent offenses could lead to higher fines, community service or possibly more severe consequences, such as felony convictions. To report graffiti, please call Senior Park Ranger Dan Scheuerman at 303.435.8225, or 303.435.8227 afterhours; or South Suburban at 303.798.5131.
