Texas is Reopening. What Does That Mean for Sugar Land Parks?

Eldridge Park

Sugar Land parks and trails will remain open with some restrictions.

As outlined in Governor Abbott’s executive order GA-18, individuals may engage in outdoor sports, provided that the sports do not include contact with other participants, and no more than four participants play the sport at any time. That being said, amenities that will reopen are tennis courts and park benches not located near pavilions.

Playgrounds, pavilions and basketball courts will remain closed as well as pools and splash pads. Pawm Springs Dog Park and the skate park at City Park are closed until further notice.

Walking, jogging and non-contact sports are allowed in the parks.

Sugar Land residents are encouraged to self-screen before playing any outdoor sport for new or worsening signs or symptoms of possible COVID-19, including:

  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Chills
  • Repeated shaking with chills
  • Muscle pain
  • Headache
  • Sore throat
  • Loss of taste or smell
  • Diarrhea
  • Feeling feverish or a measured temperature greater than or equal to 100.0 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Known close contact with a person who is lab confirmed to have COVID-19

Please note, public health guidance cannot anticipate every unique situation. Individuals should stay informed and take actions based on common sense and wise judgement that will protect health and support economic revitalization.

Please remember to maintain a safe social distance of at least six feet between you and others around you when out in public. For more information, please visit www.sugarlandtx.gov/Coronavirus.
