  • Facilities Update: Per the State of Maine DECD update on June 10th, the use of outdoor playgrounds is now permitted and recommended to use at your own risk. We advise the use of hand sanitizer both before and after use of the playground and maintaining physical distancing as much as possible. All outdoor basketball courts and tennis courts are now open, although social distancing is still recommended.  Please use the USTA guidelines for tennis recommendations

    Springvale Rec Area and Holdsworth Park remain open to the public, except on Tuesdays and Fridays when the Sanford Summer Campers will be visiting.  August 21 is the final day Summer Camp will be there.

    The recreation office is open Monday - Friday 8am to 3:30pm

    City Field Update: City Fields may be used by organizations so long as they follow state recommendations for community sports, provide a COVID-19 safety plan and sign the City's waivers.  

    We will continue to monitor State regulations and guidelines concerning COVID-19 and the impact they have on our programs and fields.  We will make every effort we can to return to “regulation play” as soon as possible and will post an update here under announcements when fields have re-opened. In the meantime, please be patient and stay safe. Thank you!
