Chaska Community Center Update

A note from Chaska Parks and Recreation:

Dear CCC Member,

As the coronavirus outbreak continues to evolve, I wanted to let you know that we are closing the Community Center at 7:00pm March 16 through March 31. The Curling and Event Center is closing at 4:30 pm March 16 through March 31. These closures include the cancellation of all programs, activities, leagues, and rentals.

You’re probably wondering what this means for you.

  • If you are a month-to-month member at the Community Center, we will be putting a hold on your membership. That means we won’t be billing you until we reopen.
  • If you have an annual membership at the Community Center, we will look to extend your expiration based on the length of time that we are closed.
  • If you’re a current participant in a registered program, we will be contacting you to process a prorated refund.
  • If you have a room rental, we will be reaching out to either reschedule if possible or offer a refund.

While we understand that this is an inconvenience, it is important to do our part to help slow the spread of COVID-19. You are our top priority, and we felt this was the best way to keep you healthy and safe.

Our department’s vision is to create lifelong memories and a healthy community for all to enjoy. We will continue to find ways to strive towards this goal.

We encourage everyone to find ways to exercise. We believe that staying active, while keeping your social distance, can play a big role in good mental and physical health during this stressful time.

We are looking into ways to stay engaged even though we won’t see you in our facilities. You might see some workout videos posted on the Chaska Community Television YouTube channel. With spring on the horizon, you could try exercising outside. Going for a walk on some of our great trails can be a good way to move around and get some fresh air. You might even discover some of our beautiful scenery.

Luckily, being social these days isn’t only face-to-face. Share your home or outdoor workouts or adventures with us on our Facebook page. We’d love to see how you are coping during this time of perceived isolation.

This is an opportunity to connect in different ways with our community. While we may not be able to meet for a run at the community center or go to a community festival, we can all chip in by helping a neighbor or supporting a local charity.

We understand that we may not have answered all your questions. Please reach out by calling 952-448-3176 to talk with us. We will continue to assess this situation as it evolves and provide updates.

In Health,

Marshall Grange
City of Chaska
