PARKS OPEN MAY 14th
SOME RESTRICTIONS APPLY // Updated August 17th, 2020
Parks are currently open with some restrictions. Park visitors must practice social distancing—remaining out of congregate settings, avoiding mass gatherings and maintaining distance (approximately 6 feet or 2 meters) from others when possible. The following is also expected of park visitors: follow CDC’s guidelines on personal hygiene prior to visiting parks or trails; do not use parks or trails if exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19; be prepared for limited access to public restrooms or water fountains; share the trail and warn other trail users of your presence as you pass. Face coverings are strongly encouraged and should be worn whenever possible. Please note that all park patrons utilize parks and facilities at their own risk.
