The closure order is intended to keep us home so we can slow the spread of the virus. Due to park design, many parks can still get crowded if walk-in access is allowed. Walk-in access also presents an issue of equity for people who don’t live near parks. We know this is a disappointing development, but we’re really asking for your cooperation.
We had hoped the parks could remain a resource for basic activities, but the greater health of our community makes closing them the right choice at this time.
