City Gradually Reopening Playgrounds

Mayor Leirion Gaylor Baird today announced that the Lincoln Parks and Recreation Department has begun to gradually reopen the 89 city playgrounds that have been closed due to the pandemic. The five parks districts are reopening the playgrounds as they are inspected, and no schedule or timeline for specific locations is currently available. The city’s goal is to reopen all the playgrounds by the Fourth of July weekend.
