  • Meditate (20 minutes focusing on your breathing with eyes closed).
  • Treat yourself to a ten minute face mask.

COVID-19 VIRUS ALERT

In an effort to slow the spread of this virus, public parks and recreational facilities are closed to the public until further notice.

We all love our parks especially during this beautiful weather but please follow the below recommendations. Recommendations for trail & park users on observing social distancing minimums are from the National Recreation & Park Association.

There are a number of specific recommendations for advising the public to keep safe social distancing when in parks or on trails.

✅Follow CDC’s guidance on personal hygiene prior to heading to trails — wash hands, carry hand sanitizer, do not use trails if you have symptoms, cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing, etc.
✅Observe at all times CDC’s minimum recommended social distancing of six feet from other people. Practice it and know what it looks like. Keep it as you walk, bike or hike.
✅Warn other trail users of your presence and as you pass to allow proper distance and step off trails to allow others to pass, keeping minimum recommended distances at all times. Signal your presence with your voice, bell or horn.
✅Note that trail and park users may find public restrooms closed — be prepared before you leave and time outings so that you are not dependent on public restrooms.
✅Bring water or drinks — public drinking fountains may be disabled and should not be used, even if operable.
✅Bring a suitable trash bag. Leave no trash, take everything out to protect park workers.

 

Please be advised that ALL recreation programs have been CANCELLED until further notice as well.
