Important Reminder

All parks and trails are open on their regularly scheduled hours, but we ask that you please use caution before visiting and always maintain at least six feet of distance between you and other visitors. Do not gather, meet up or visit with anyone at the park who does not live in your same household. Use sanitizer and avoid touching any shared surfaces. 

It is impossible for the city to disinfect park equipment and furnishings in a manner to totally eradicate the potential spread of COVID-19. Our crews are working hard to keep the parks clean. But the safest way to avoid the spread of dangerous germs is to stay home.
