UPDATE: June 15, 2020


Please remember that even as we begin to resume activities and re-open closed amenities in our parks and facilities that social distancing, wearing a face covering while in public, and personal hygiene remains the most important aspects of keeping yourself and others safe. We strongly encourage all residents to assist us in the safe use of our parks and facilities so that they can remain open!

Please continue to follow updates through this page and our Department’s other social media outlets for the latest information.
