Recreation Policies

The City of Fort Collins Parks and Recreation Departments have developed new policies related to air quality, extreme heat, and drought. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the National Weather Service provided information to help us establish important guidelines and practices related to environmental best practices. We incorporated these guidelines to create consistent and efficient responses to public health concerns related to these events. Our new policies will allow Recreation and Parks participants and staff to appropriately respond to a variety circumstances related to air quality and extreme heat.
