The Eagle Ponte Recreation Center will return to regular hours of operation on Monday, June 15, 2020, with a few conditions in place. This is the first time many services will be available to the recreation center’s members since the facility closed on March 20, 2020 due to the coronavirus outbreak.
With the expanded hours and programming, Mont Belvieu Parks and Recreation Department staff is asking that members continue to maintain safe social distancing and sanitation practices before and after equipment use. The facility will continue to be closed from 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. daily for sanitizing. Also, all members and guests will continue to be screened before entering.
Child Watch will be open for regular hours with increased sanitation efforts, and children are limited to one hour in Child Watch. To help minimize the number of people entering the Child Watch room, all check-ins and screening will take place at the front desk; staff asks that parents drop their children off at the Child Watch door instead of walking fully into the room. Additionally, Child Watch will only be available to members, and not guests, for the time being.
EPRC’s indoor lap pool will re-open with its regular hours and increased sanitation throughout the day. Swim equipment and toys, such as water weights and noodles, will be unavailable for the time being. But, EPRC members are welcome to bring their own equipment for pool workouts. Due to increase sanitization efforts and for the health of all of our patrons, members will be required to shower before entering the pool area.
Group Exercise Classes will return to EPRC on Monday, June 22nd. EPRC Fitness Staff is making some changes to the class schedule so the room and equipment can be thoroughly cleaned between classes.
In addition to the expansion of hours and programming at Eagle Pointe Recreation Center, the City is reopening The Hilltop – A Center for Active Senior Adults on Monday. The Hilltop will operate according to its normal days and hours.
