UPDATES REGARDING COVID-19
OTHER NEWS AND UPDATES
Updated July 27, 2020
COVID-19 Closures and Updates:
The economic and health/safety impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic have caused the City of Ithaca to make drastic decisions around our services. The Cass Park Pool and Ithaca Youth Bureau buildings and pavilions are closed for the summer. Youth Bureau staff are slowly returning from their furloughed status and are eager to offer your child(ren) programming. Programming is going to look a little different, and we will be limiting the number of children in each program to be sure they are safe and we are able to implement new required COVID-19 protocols. New programming begins Monday, July 27th. We will gradually add more programs as we are able.
Please visit Community Pass for more information and to register.

Updated May 18, 2020
The economic and health/safety impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic have caused the City of Ithaca to make drastic decisions around our services. All Ithaca Youth Bureau programs and services have been cancelled for the summer. This includes the Cass Park Pool and our buildings and pavilions. All playgrounds, fitness equipment, tennis/pickleball courts, restrooms, and athletic fields remain closed.
Cass Park green spaces, the Cayuga Waterfront Trail and Boat Rack Storage remain open.
We hope we can return to serve you soon. Just because our programs are cancelled and facilities are closed doesn't mean we don't care! Stay safe and stay strong. We are in this together.
