Weather & Closures


The Community Center typically remains open and programs run as scheduled during inclement spring and summer weather. This includes our pools during thunderstorms. For information on field closures due to rain, please call our sports and weather line after 4:00 pm on weekdays at 614-786-7366 or check for league weather updates online.

Closure Announcements

During inclement weather Worthington Parks and Recreation facilities will maintain normal operating hours for general recreation unless directed otherwise by the City Manager. We know you and your families need a place to play, so we maintain facility and program operations as long as instructors and staff are available. Program cancellation decisions are made independent of Worthington school closures. When possible, cancellations will be posted on Worthington's Facebook page and on the WPRD sports line (614-786-7366) beginning at 8:30am for morning classes and 2:00pm for afternoon and evening classes. Should weather conditions worsen after the indicated times, cancellation decisions will be made and communications handled in the best possible way according to the situation and staff resources. In the event of a weather related closure, programs and permit groups will be rescheduled, accounts credited or refunded.
