COVID-19 Update: The Town of Silverthorne has begun a phased reopening of its park amenities in response to the latest public health orders from Summit County and the state of Colorado. Playgrounds and warming huts will remain closed at this time. The Town of Silverthorne is following guidelines from Summit County’s Roadmap to Recovery to determine when it is safe to reopen those amenities. 

To ensure safety and proper physical distancing, court reservations are highly recommended for pickleball, tennis, basketball and sand volleyball. Court reservations may be made ahead of time in the form below. Pickleball may only be played at Trent Park courts and tennis may only be played at Rainbow Park courts. Basketball and sand volleyball are available at Rainbow Park.  

Silverthorne’s parks provide opportunities for residents to safely engage in activities that support mental, physical and social strength. Park ambassadors will be present at Silverthorne parks to help park users with questions or concerns regarding court reservations, rules and safety.
