Municipal parks will remain open for walking trails while athletic fields and courts remain closed. To prevent potential overcrowding, many parking lots will be closed to limit the number of potential users; parking in prohibited areas, including closed lots, grass and roadways will be strictly enforced. Should the ability to maintain social distancing by users become an issue, municipal parks will be closed.
