For the health and safety of our citizens, effective immediately the following all parks and trails will remain open at this time, BUT the amenities in the park will be closed.

Closed at all city parks and facilities: playground equipment, dog park, pickleball court, tennis court, basketball courts, skate park.

Park visitors are asked to adhere to all closure notices and current social distancing recommendations of maintaining a minimum of 6 feet from others.
