COVID 19 Program and Facilities Pause

Effective Saturday, November 21, all in-person recreation programs and facilities will be paused.

Governor Tim Walz has ordered a four-week pause of most social activities, in-person dining, sports, and indoor fitness activities to help slow the rate of spread of COVID-19 in Minnesota.

In compliance with the Governor’s Executive Order, the City of Roseville will temporarily adjust its facilities, services and programming availability

Effective Saturday, November 21 all indoor recreational facilities and the Guidant John Rose MN OVAL will pause operations. All in-person recreational programs during this time will also be paused. Updates on all facilities and activities will be provided as more information becomes available on this page. The City of Roseville understands the importance of Parks and Recreation to our community’s physical, mental and emotional wellbeing and are committed to offering independent, socially distant opportunities as possible.

Activities that will remain available to residents during the four-week pause include:

  • More than 60 miles of trails that are maintained year-round for walking, running or riding.
  • Golf at Cedarholm as long as weather conditions allow for play.
  • Cross country ski trails at Acorn Park and Cedarholm Golf Course will be groomed as snow conditions allows.
  • Cross country ski and snowshoe rentals will be available in mid-December.
  • Neighborhood skating rinks for use by members of the same household (as weather allows). 
  • 32 different parks throughout the city, all offering unique environments and play experiences. 
  • Virtual programming including “virtual adult trips,” a virtual holiday craft fair and more. 

The City of Roseville looks forward to resuming safe and effective operation of facilities, programs and services as soon as conditions allow.
