After weeks of kids and adults being challenged to stay entertained at home due to the new coronavirus pandemic, several family-friendly entertainment destinations around Pennsylvania have reopened.

As Pennsylvania counties settle into the yellow phase and wait for the Governor’s go-ahead to move into the green, some changes have been made to restrictions regarding outdoor activities. 

“I want all Pennsylvanians to remain active and to enjoy all the recreation the commonwealth has to offer, but we must do so safely and with social distancing top of mind,” Wolf said.

Activities such as mountain biking, outdoor miniature golf, motorsports venues, go karts, rock climbing, disc golf, paintball, horse riding, tennis, archery or shooting, and other similar facilities are able to resume operation in yellow phase. 

Recreational amenities such as public parks and pools that are open vary by city. 

What restrictions will remain in place?

When deciding whether to venture out, observe the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s guidelines, which recommend staying home if you are sick, regularly washing your hands, staying 6 feet away from others and wearing a cloth mask in places where it is difficult to maintain social distancing.

Capacity at beaches and pools will be limited to 50 percent of the normal facility capacity and mitigation measures, including restricting visitor parking, controlling facility access, ensuring social distancing and the wearing of face masks when not in the water, must remain in place.

“Businesses that operate these outdoor recreational activities may resume operations but may not operate indoor spaces for public or visitor use other than restrooms and ticketing and entry locations,” a release notes.
