Summer Program Cancelation 

The Dedham Parks & Recreation Department has continued to work closely with local health officials regarding the current COVID-19 pandemic.  We have spent the last couple weeks reviewing the states re opening phases, along with the restrictions & guidelines set forth for Summer Recreation Day Programs.  With great consideration for all the recreation participants, staff members and the community at large we have made the decision out of an abundance of caution to cancel all of the Dedham Parks & Recreation Summer Day Programs. 
This has not been an easy decision for the Parks & Recreation Department, however, we feel the community’s wellbeing is our top priority.  We will spend the coming weeks looking at options for “new types of programming” that will meet the restrictions as well as provide different recreation & leisure activities for families and individuals. 
We will continue to plan accordingly to assure that fall recreation programs will be ready to open as more information is provide and the re opening phases continue.   Stand assure that all proper adjustments will be made to the programs as needed, and participant safety will remain our top priority as we move forward with our fall programs. 
All participants of Dedham Recreation Summer Programs will be issued a full credit, for those interested in a refund please visit
Dedham Parks & Recreation hopes to see you and your family soon!
