The city of Surprise has more clarity on the timing of Phase 2 of its four-phased restart plan.
In addition to the reopening of Surprise City Hall, 16000 N. Civic Center Plaza, on Monday, June 1, select park amenities will also resume — and to the delight of club swimmers, some pool programming is set to begin again.
However, there’s still no sign of the pools resuming open swim, and splashpads remained closed.
The city-run recreation programs and amenities that will reopen June 1 include:
The AZ TechCelerator, 12425 W. Bell Road, and the Fire Administration building, 14250 W. Statler Plaza, also plan to open June 1.
Those facilities will join ones that had already reopened, including the Police Department, 14250 W. Statler Plaza; fire stations and City Court, 16081 N. Civic Center Plaza.
The city had already reopened courts at the Surprise Tennis and Racquet Complex, the Surprise Pickleball Courts and the dog parks.
Additionally, the Surprise Resource Center, 12425 W. Bell Road, is also back to normal operating hours.
In-person proceedings at the City Court will resume Tuesday, June 2. Face masks will be mandatory, plus residents can expect alternative schedules and other requirements to ensure compliance with applicable Arizona Supreme Court Administrative Orders and Surprise City Court Administrative Orders.
Surprise has the requirements listed at surpriseaz.gov/court.
Water aerobics and lap swimming will be available at the Surprise Aquatic Center and Hollyhock Pool, 15808 N. Hollyhock St., starting Monday, June 8.
Both will be open for ages 15 and older and lap swim requires an appointment.
Registration is available at surpriserec.surpriseaz.gov.
Meal delivery and pick-up will continue at the Surprise Senior Center.
The facility will also be offering no-cost virtual programming, starting June 1. The programs will be offered at 9:30 a.m. weekdays.

When City Hall reopens, it will have some service modifications that will be in effect until further notice. Those include:
With an eye toward safety, city staff is preparing for increased sanitation procedures, including more hand sanitizing stations and installing plexiglass barriers at service counters.
