LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - The second phase of Louisville Parks and Recreation’s reopening of its community centers will begin Monday, May 10.

The Metro Arts Center, located at 8360 Dixie Highway, and the Wilderness Road Senior Center at 8111 Blue Lick Road, will reopen, joining the 10 other community centers that reopened in late March.

Louisville Parks and Recreation also announced they are now accepting rentals for pavilions and shelters online beginning Monday.

“We are excited to continue our phased reopening approach and safely welcome more participants back into our community centers,” Ben Johnson, Assistant Director of Parks and Recreation said. “I just want to remind people that we are still in a COVID environment so they will see some significant changes in how we operate and may not be able to participate in all of their favorite activities just yet.”

Centers will be open during regular business hours in the second phase of reopening. Residents of all ages can visit the centers Monday through Thursday from 12 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Friday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
