The Fitness Center

Please find below a detailed look at Faribault Parks and Recreation's re-opening plans. Note that these are subject to change as State restrictions continue to evolve.

Starting Monday, Jan. 4, the Faribault Community Center will be returning to the regular hours:

•       M-Th: 5:30 a.m. - 8 p.m.

•       Fri: 5:30 a.m. - 6 p.m.

•       Sat: 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.

•       Sun: 12 - 6 p.m.

With the current restrictions imposed by the State, there are many changes. Please read this carefully to ensure continued compliance. One major change that needs to be adhered to is constant mask-wearing, which includes while working out. The only time a mask can be off is when in the shower, or in the pool. Additionally, 12-foot social distancing will be required during all workout times. Six-foot social distancing is required while in the locker rooms, pool deck, hallways, etc.

All below changes take effect Jan. 4.
