HARKER HEIGHTS, TX — The Harker Heights Parks and Recreation Department has made the decision to pause further reopenings and to not open the Carl Levin Park Pool for the 2020 Summer season.

The pause in reopening means that the City will not open the Carl Levin Park Pool, no athletic field rentals for games or tournaments will be accepted, and outdoor facility rentals may not exceed 100 people.

All facilities that are open currently will remain open for the time being, but this is subject to change.

“As much as we want to open all of our facilities and return to providing quality recreation and parks services to our community, we are even more interested in ensuring the safety and health of our staff and patrons,” said Jeff Achee, Director of Parks and Recreation. “With the uptick in infections in our area, we do not feel this would be a good time to reopen programming and services.”

The Parks and Recreation Department will continue to look at how facilities and programming can be safely reopened and resumed moving forward.

Fall Events and Programs are still being scheduled.

The most up-to-date information will be posted on the Parks and Rec website, and their Facebook page.
