Pavilions to Re-Open in City of Kingston Parks
KINGSTON, NY – Mayor Steven T. Noble is pleased to announce that City of Kingston park pavilions will open to the public on May 1, 2021 and are now taking rental reservations.
City of Kingston Parks & Recreation closed all pavilions in local parks in March 2020 due to the potential spread of Coronavirus. With guidance from New York State, pavilions will reopen to the public in May with a maximum capacity of 200 people, which will be strictly enforced. Pavilion rentals will be available from May 1 through October 24, 2021 with fees ranging from $65 to $190.
“The re-opening of our pavilions will help our residents celebrate special events outdoors in a safe and healthy way,” said Mayor Noble. “While we still encourage all residents to remain vigilant in stopping the spread of Coronavirus by wearing masks and social distancing, we hope the community will enjoy the park’s amenities with family and friends.”
“We’re pleased to be able to resume renting our popular pavilions,” said Lynsey Timbrouck, Director of Recreation. “Residents have been eager to celebrate various occasions in our parks and we’re happy that we can now provide them with the space to do so. We would like to remind the community to continue following all CDC guidelines while visiting our parks to ensure that they are keeping themselves and others as safe as possible.”
