  • All play equipment and sports facilities are still closed.
  • No social gatherings or sports are permitted.
  • Please wear masks and maintain at least 6 feet of distance from others, except among those living in the same household.

Police will patrol the parks to ensure social distancing rules are observed.

The continued availability of park access depends upon everyone’s cooperation in following these safety and health rules.
