May 22 Updates :

  • Due to ongoing health concerns,  KC Parks has decided it will not open any of the 14 Pools or 14 spray grounds this season. After much deliberation and consultation with the City’s Health Department, KC Parks feels this is the best decision for our community.  KC Parks has reopened dog parks, shelter reservations and tennis / pickleball courts  with distancing guidelines, and our 221 parks, miles of trails and golf courses remain open as well.

    Read the guidelines for privately operated swimming pools and aquatic facilities. This includes HOA, apartment communities and hotel pools. 

  • In order to promote social distancing and provide outdoor space for restaurants and businesses while KCMO slowly reopens, we are temporarily easing some requirements for Sidewalk Cafes, Street Cafes, Parklets and parking lot dining.

    Read the Temporary Outdoor Seating Program Fact Sheet and more.
