Family Activities

The Emporia Recreation Commission asks each individual to decide what is right for you and/or your family at this time. We are working with local and state authorities as well as the Kansas Recreation and Park Association (KRPA) to ensure we comply with the guidelines being put into place to provide the best possible experience for all. However, the ERC cannot guarantee that you or your child(ren)will not become infected with COVID-19.
