Foley pools, including the ones at Max Griffin Park and Aaronville Park, will open on June 8, with a 50-person maximum occupancy.

The recreation department’s outdoor fields -- baseball/softball/soccer/multipurpose fields -- are slated to open June 15, with spectator social distancing.

Foley’s Sports Tourism Event Center will open on June 20 for tournament competition with 50% occupancy and social distancing for spectators.

Civic center bookings will begin May 26, with users adhering to social distancing and 50% occupancy. Each event will be reviewed by staff to ensure that the event lends itself to these constraints.
