Last week, in our attempt to quickly reopen portions of our city parks while restricting access to areas of congregation, we made a decision that, in hindsight, should have been more carefully considered. It’s been a delicate balance between enforcement and access, but in this instance, we missed the mark. We heard the calls of our community and worked diligently throughout the weekend to establish new park operating procedures and staffing schedules.
New park rules will allow for 10 people in the skate area at a time — demarcations will notate six-feet of separation. Park signage will be posted that outlines new rules, and city staff has been assigned on rotation to monitor the park. Playgrounds and pavilions remain closed.
Our number one priority is, and always has been, the health and safety of our neighbors. We are all in this together and hope this move shows our commitment to working towards shared solutions.
An updated list of park openings and closures is here.
