I haven’t water skied since last summer. That’s about to change. Chris LeBlanc photo

Big news, fellow water bums.
The Austin Parks and Recreation Department will reopen boat launches and boat docks on Saturday.
The city’s tennis centers, golf courses, boating concessions, clay shooting concessions, food concessions and Umlauf Sculpture Garden will also reopen, with Stage 4 Covid-19 protocols in place. (See the guidelines at COVID-19: Risk-Based Guidelines.)
According to a press release, the changes were made in consultation with Austin Public Health and city leadership. The facilities will operate under reduced capacity, with modified operating procedures such as social distancing, cleaning and temperature checks.
According to a press release, the department evaluates its operations on a daily basis. If the city moves to Stage 3, the department could open more facilities. If conditions degrade, it could close facilities again.
