Parks, trails, open spaces, outdoor playgrounds and sport courts remain open for use. Interaction in these areas should be limited to those within your household and 6 feet of physical distancing should be maintained between groups. For the current status of various facilities, programs and services, please visit the respective web pages.

Additional reminders:

  • Do not use parks, trails and open spaces if you are exhibiting symptoms. If you or your children are experiencing symptoms, it’s important to stay home when sick.
  • Follow the CDC’s guidance on personal hygiene prior to, during and after use of parks or trails. Bring hand sanitizer with you to clean your hands if soap and water are not available.
  • Maintain a physical distance of 6 feet from members of other households at all times. In many cases, especially on trails, this may mean creating a single-file line. If this is not possible, find an alternate location or depart that space.
  • Wear a mask when possible.
  • While on trails, warn other users of your presence before you pass, and step aside to let others pass. Signal your presence with your voice, bell or horn.
