Falcon Heights cancels summer programs

Falcon Heights City Administrator Sack Thongvanh announced May 8 that all city summer recreation programs would be canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Anyone who has registered for a summer program will receive a full refund by check.

Playgrounds and courts also will remain closed until further notice. Trails at city parks are open; users are reminded to maintain appropriate social distance. The building at Community Park will not be available for reservations this summer.

Residents are asked to visit www.falconheights.org for updates.

Events still in abeyance

As of the Bugle’s latest press deadline, a number of organizations continued to hold in abeyance their regular schedule of activities and events. Those organizations included the St. Paul Parks and Recreation Department’s recreation centers, the Saint Anthony Park Library and St. Anthony Park Area Seniors.
