Update as of Tuesday, July 7, 2020
While reopening, the safety of our community and staff is our priority. Playgrounds are now open, however, capacity is limited to 50 people and individuals must follow social distancing guidelines. Splash pads, picnic tables, grill and restrooms in our parks are also open for public use.
As we monitor the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) daily and follow the recommendations of the Lake County Health Department, the safety of our patrons, participants, and staff is our top priority. We recognize the seriousness of the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in our community. Help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases by following the Center for Disease Control’s tips by staying home if sick; avoiding close contact with people who are sick; covering coughs and sneezes; avoiding touching eyes, nose and mouth; and washing hands with soap and water.
