Facilities & Rentals
Like many cities, the City of Fridley continues to address the response for COVID-19. For several weeks, the City has been assessing its park and recreation programs, activities and facilities in order to follow the guidelines issued by the CDC, Minnesota Department of Health as well as the Governor’s executive orders. At this time, the City has made the decision to continue to close the picnic shelter and park buildings through July 6, 2020. No reservations will be taken until the City is able to reassess the guidelines and protocols at the end of June. If you have made a reservation for a picnic facility, park building or room rental, the City will begin issuing refunds to those who have applied for permits or processed a payment. If you have any questions, please contact our Customer Service Representative at 763-572-3570.
