All Roseville Parks and Recreation programs have been planned, developed and conducted following the Center for Disease Control and MDH guidelines for Social Distancing in Recreational Programs. There is some risk of participating in any activity during the pandemic. Even though we are working to provide as safe of an environment as possible, 100% mitigation cannot be guaranteed.
