  • Updates on the status of summer recreational programs will be posted at in mid-May.
  • The Community Garage Sale and Roseville School of Dance Recital have been canceled for 2020.

  • The skate park at the OVAL will be closed until further notice.


  • Cedarholm Golf Course is open with social distancing measures in place. Golf leagues have been postponed pending further guidance.


  • Parks, trails and open spaces remain open for use while exercising social distancing.
  • Please do not use the parks if you are sick.
  • Wash your hands before and after using the park.
  • Please respect others’ social distancing by leaving 6 feet of space between yourself and other users.

Following additional guidance, facilities, events and activities may be adjusted during this period and beyond. We will post updates at as new information becomes available. Program and facility supervisors will be contacting participants directly regarding schedule adjustments or refunds once the duration of the closure is understood.

This is a dynamic situation that we are closely monitoring, analyzing and adjusting to. We encourage you to check for updates.

Throughout the closure, we will be providing some activities via our Facebook page as part of our “At Home with Roseville Parks and Recreation” campaign.
