IMPORTANT PROGRAM UPDATES (2/05/2021) | See programming updates below

The City of Columbus continues to place priority in keeping residents safe and healthy during the public health emergency. With guidance from Columbus Public Health and the Ohio Department of Health, the Columbus Recreation and Parks Department will resume winter programming. 

Effective Feb. 8, registered program participants at Columbus Recreation and Parks community centers and sports facilities can access a range of activities, including dance classes, sports skills and drills, arts classes and fitness center access. Community centers will also continue to offer Active Learning Points where students can receive assistance with and complete schoolwork. Programming at the Cultural Arts Center begins in March – visit for more information.

Residents can view and register for activities online at Those without internet access can register by calling or stopping by their local community center. A list of community centers is available online at

The health and safety of participants and staff is the department’s first priority. Robust safety protocols continue to be in place, including:

  • Registration and class size are limited.
  • Access to facilities is limited to registered participants and staff, with the exception of those who are onsite for in-person registration.
  • Participants must perform daily well checks at home. If anyone is feeling sick (cough, fever, nausea, runny nose, etc.), they must stay home.
  • Face coverings must be worn at all times unless otherwise noted.
  • Social distancing–staying six feet away from others – must be observed at all times, with an understanding of the challenges and limitations for social distancing with very young children and individuals with disabilities.
