In an effort to reduce the community spread of COVID-19 and consistent with the City’s focus on the health and safety of our community, Mesa announced today, the closure of all playgrounds and sports facilities throughout the city. #coronavirus #covid_19
Wishing everyone a Happy St. Patrick's Day! I was in the holiday spirit sporting my green top hat and tie, so as to avoid any pinching and decided to stop by Emerald Park to see if I might find a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow or at least a little luck of the Irish. I didn't find either, but I discovered that Emerald park has disc golf, a beautiful lake, and a fun playground. ~Your friend O'Malley ☘️
Posted @withregram • @cityofmesa Out of an abundance of caution and to support other preventive measures underway, beginning Monday, March 16 the city of Mesa, Arizona is: - Closing the theaters at Mesa Arts Center (through March 29).

We encourage users to remember, the best way to reduce the risk of getting sick and to avoid COVID-19: 1. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. 2. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. 3. Avoid close contact with people who are sick. 4. Stay home when you are sick. 5. Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. 6. Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

Kleinman Park has not just one but FOUR #pickleball courts open to the public! Webster's after-school participants had a great time playing this growing sport last week on a fantastic sunny afternoon. If anyone wants to give Pickleball a try, send them to Extension and 8th Ave since it's the perfect season to spend time outside!🌤️🥒🎾 #MesaParks #YourPlaceToPlay
I know February was #LoveMyPark month, but one month just wasn't enough time to tell you about all of the amazing parks in #MesaAZ. So I'm going to continue on my park tour, sharing my photos with you so you can get out and explore some of them on your own! Most recently I visited Pioneer Park which has an amazing historic train, unique water wall splash pad area, and a treehouse play structure with a suspension bridge!
See you later alligator, literally! The Phoenix Herpetological Sanctuary @phoenixherp visited Eagles Community and Jefferson Recreation Centers on Friday. Keepers brought with them a Caiman Alligator, a Crocodile, and a 7 ft. long American Alligator named Baby. Did you know Baby has five toes on her front feet but only four on her back ones? Her boyfriend Mr. Stubbs wasn't able to attend, but PHS staff brought along a 3D printed model of his prosthetic tail. These awesome presenters will make another appearance during Passport to Play Summer Camps. 🐊 #PassportToPlay #YourPlacetoPlay #MesaAZ
