ARE THE PARKS STILL OPEN? UPDATED
All open turf areas and walkways of our parks will remain open until we are directed otherwise by the local health department. The tennis and pickleball courts are locked and we are strongly discouraging use of any playground equipment and the basketball courts as they do not meet the current CDC guidelines.. We encourage you to continue visiting our parks, as regular exercise is essential to physical and mental well-being. However, when visiting please follow all CDC guidelines regarding social distancing (stay 6' from others) and increased personal hygiene protocol (washing your hands regularly, keeping your hands away from your face and bringing hand sanitizer with you if you have it) Our park restrooms are currently open with at least one restroom open at parks with facilities. This is subject to change based on staff availability.
