In response to Governor Ducey’s Executive Order on 6/29/2020 the Mesa Parks, Recreation and Community Facilities Department will make the following adjustments to our Recreation Reopening plan:

  • The Red Mountain Center will be closed beginning June 30, 2020 through at least July 27, 2020.  Memberships will be suspended during this closure. Aster Aging Senior services will not be available onsite.
  • Public pools will reduce public swim capacities and enforce increased social distancing measures to follow the Executive Order. Swimming lessons and fitness lap swim will continue as scheduled.
  • Summer Camp programs will continue to operate as they meet capacity and social distancing requirements.
  • The Mesa Tennis Center will limit its capacity to no more than 50 people.
  • Sports field rentals will continue to operate facilitating team practices only and will require compliance of social distancing requirements.

The City of Mesa will continue to evaluate and respond to Executive Orders to ensure the health and safety of our community.

Adaptive Sports & Recreation

Fall 2020 season information coming soon.

Sports and recreation opportunities are available for individuals with intellectual disabilities ages 6 and older residing in or outside of Mesa. The typical program will take place once per week for up to 12 weeks in a season.

The training schedule for each program is based on the competition schedules as determined by Special Olympics Arizona (SOAZ). Athletes have the choice whether or not to compete in the SOAZ competitions. If the athlete will compete in SOAZ competitions, a Medical & Consent Form must be completed by a physical and submitted to the City of Mesa office. The document is valid for three years from the date of the doctor’s and participant’s (or guardian’s) signatures. Athletes without an up-to-date Medical & Consent Form will not be allowed to participate in SOAZ competitions.
