Covid-19 Response

We are committed to providing a safe environment for our community in all ways

The health and safety of park staff and visitors is our primary concern in light of the corona virus pandemic. We value the trust and support of our community in the decisions we make to keep everyone well and thank you for your understanding, even as there continue to be inconveniences to normal operations. As a non-profit organization, our funding has also taken a toll in light of the economic impact of the virus. As we prepare the parks for daily public use and make decisions concerning operations moving forward, we ask ourselves the following questions:

  • Is it safe?

  • Can we afford it?

  • Can we manage it? 

 

We want to return to normal as much as our park visitors do - we miss you! And we also trust our community to understand that difficult decisions are being made across our city and beyond to maintain the health of our community members. The following adjustments have been made to park operations concerning Covid-19. Developments are ongoing and will be updated on this page accordingly.
