Public Lands 

Playgrounds, the skate park, and trails remain open.

You are welcome to continue to enjoy trails and park spaces, including the dog parks. Outdoor recreation in the form of walking, biking, hiking, and running can provide valuable physical and mental health benefits. 

When using park trails and spaces, please continue to take all possible actions to reduce further spread of COVID-19. Maintain 6 feet of space between yourself and any other people, and limit outdoor group size. Wear a mask if you are in a shelter space or if social distancing is not possible. If you do not feel well or someone in your house is sick, please stay home.

For Recreation program policies related to COVID-19, please navigate to the Recreation Programs page to find the link to our full COVID-19 plan.


 We encourage anyone out enjoying our public lands to help beautify parks or conservancy areas. Although we typically ask that users stay on the trails, if you are able to safely reach litter you can leave the trail to do so. We thank you in advance for helping us beautify the Good Neighbor City.
