Are the parks open?

The following City of Homestead parks are open for limited use: Blakey Park, Audubon Park, Mayor Roscoe Warren Municipal Park, James Archer Smith Park, JD Redd Park, and Homestead Sports Complex.  These City parks are open from 7am to 8pm for passive use such as walking, jogging, biking, or rollerblading; open space picnics with groups of 10 or less; singles and doubles tennis; and recreational passing and catching in open areas.

The City of Homestead’s Roby George Park Pool, located at 201 SW 11th Avenue, Homestead, FL 33030, is open Monday through Friday 2pm – 6pm and 10am – 6pm on weekends.  Capacity is limited to 50 people at a time in 45 minute sessions.  For example, visitors would be able to use the pool from 2pm until 2:45pm and the next session would begin at 3pm.  This system allows for Parks & Recreation Staff to thoroughly clean all high-touch surfaces once per hour and ensures fairness and crowd control in light of ongoing COVID-19 social distancing restrictions.  Visitors will be permitted to re-enter consecutive sessions if there is enough space available.
