Continuing the urgency and need to maintain social distancing we are closing all remaining amenities within the park system which also include public water fountains, restrooms and dog parks. The only remaining use permissible will be open park turf areas and trails observing the 6ft. distance rule. First and foremost, we are strongly encouraging people to stay home but understand that this maybe the only greenspace near their neighborhood. Park Rangers will be monitoring parks and trail usage to ensure compliance of the 6’ ft safe distance requirement.
