In Pueblo, City Park Dog Park will resume regular hours of 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. beginning this Friday.

The maximum capacity of dog owners/patrons will be limited to 25 or less in the large section and 10 or fewer at any given time in the small section of the dog park. The City is asking the community to use the dark park for 30 minutes or less.

Pueblo is also only allowing 10 people per playground, but also says the playground's outdoor fitness requirement and softball fields are first come, first serve, but will also have to adhere to the 10-person limit.

Currently, the City of Pueblo is looking to open the City Park poll for laps and swim practice by June 15 and open the rest of the people to the public by June 26.
