Park Usage Guidelines
Getting out into nature is important for self-care, both physically and mentally, but it is still important to follow social distancing best practices to slow the spread of COVID-19. If you do venture outdoors, please follow the recommended guidelines when using parks and trails to keep you and your family healthy.
- Stay Home: Stay home if you are sick or show any symptoms.
- Wash Your Hands: Wash your hands for 20 seconds using soap and water before coming to the park. Carry hand sanitizer and avoid touching railings, picnic tables and benches.
- Wear A Mask: Cloth face coverings are required state-wide in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.
- Keep Your Distance: Maintain at least 6 feet between yourself and others, and avoid group gatherings with those outside your immediate household. Give notice when passing on a trail. If it’s crowded, choose another park or trail.
- Pack It Up: Take your trash with you when you leave. Bring your own water and expect bathroom closures.
- Respect Closures: At this time, only Elk Rock Island and the trail at Spring Park are closed due to fire damage. All parks, trails, playgrounds and sports courts are open.
- Keep Dogs On A Leash – Keep your dog on a leash at all times, don’t allow your dog to greet other dogs and pick up after your pet.
