COVID-19 Response

Parks, trails and open spaces are open per the governor’s Stay-at-Home orderHowever, this does not mean you should use these spaces as you normally would. If you choose to participate in responsible outdoor recreation, please adhere to the following at all times:

  • Playgrounds, pavilions and other gathering spaces are closed. These areas are considered high risk for increasing transmission.
  • No organized group activities or recreation. All gatherings of individuals of any size for any reason other than critical business or government functions are banned per the Stay-at-Home order.
  • 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 and during 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 other parties at all times. How far is six feet? It’s about the same distance as a pair of adult skis. Know what this looks like and practice it. 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.
  • 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.
  • Users may find public restrooms closed. Be prepared before you leave and time outings so that you are not dependent on public restrooms.
  • Bring water or drinks. Public drinking fountains may be disabled and should not be used, even if operable.
  • Bring a suitable trash bag. Leave no trace, take everything out to protect park workers.

All educational and recreational programming, special events and facility rentals are suspended until further notice. Physical parks offices are closed to the public, but employees continue to conduct City business remotely and in the field.
