Out of an abundance of caution and in an effort to avoid introducing the coronavirus to vulnerable populations, the City of Farmers Branch is following the other Dallas County jurisdictions and has announced that the Community Recreation Center, Aquatics Center, Historical Park, Manske Library and The Branch Connection senior activity center will close at noon, Friday, March 13. This closure has extended to at least April 6 and could be extended depending on the development of the coronavirus.
All City-related or sponsored events, meetings and activities at all facilities are canceled through the end of April.
Greetings from your friends at the Farmers Branch Parks and Recreation Department
As you may know, the Recreation Center, Aquatics Center, The Branch Connection and Historical Park are currently closed like many other gyms, recreation facilities, and entertainment venues.
For now, we have suspended all memberships to all Farmers Branch Parks and Recreation facilities. That means, if you normally have an ongoing monthly membership charge drafted from your account and you were charged in March, we’re refunding that monthly charge back to you. If you have an annual membership you pay for one time a year and it expires annually, we are putting your membership "on hold" and we’ll resume it when the facilities are able to reopen. That will allow you to get a full 12 months out of your annual membership.
If you or someone in your family participates in classes at the Recreation Center, we’re working on getting together some online options for you. This includes youth and adult programs. While we know it’s not the same as attending in person, we hope that you’ll continue to support your favorite instructors by participating in their classes virtually. We will have more information in the following days.
These are unprecedented times and we are all in this together.
We miss our guests and we look forward to reopening our doors and having you and your family back. Until then, we are here for you via email, phone, and on social media.
See you soon!
The Farmers Branch Community Recreation Center is a 60,000 square foot facility located in the heart of Farmers Branch offering a variety of fitness, recreational and educational opportunities.
