COVID-19 SAFETY MEASURES

All in person meetings are cancelled, all in person events planned for the near future have been cancelled and we are advising any individuals that use our park to social distance and wear a face covering when social distance cannot be maintained.

As a reminder, the Center for Disease Control defines social distancing as it applies to COVID-19 as "remaining out of congregate settings, avoiding mass gatherings, and maintaining distance, approximately 6 feet, from others when possible."

We share your disappointment, and want to thank everyone in our community for understanding what a trying time the coming weeks are going to be. We know this is a lot to process, and that you have a lot of responsibilities and concerns to deal with. Please keep in mind this is uncharted territory and there is no handbook on how to respond to these uncertain times. The health and well-being of our community is of utmost importance, and we need to work together to get through this difficult time. We are a resilient community and we will continue to work with all of our partners to safely serve the public in any way possible.
