Parks & Recreation Department

Currently our office is running on limited essential services until further notice.

All of our playgrounds at all of our parks are closed for public use to protect our young guests and you.

Effective Saturday April 4:

The Disc Golf Course and Basketball Court at Fitzgerald Park will be closed for use.

Additionally, access to more popular areas including the fish ladder at Fitzgerald and the pond at Lincoln Brick Park will also be closed.

All trails and open areas will remain open as long as visitors adhere to the CDC’s recommended social distancing guidelines.

While we appreciate the ability to remain an essential health and wellness outlet for the community, we must also do our part in conjunction with the public to keep our parks open. The more misuse and overcrowding concerns are raised, the likelihood more amenities and park closures become a reality.

Thank you,
Parks Administration.
