Safer at home is the best option. Trails, Turkey Mountain, playgrounds, picnic areas, and green spaces are open but the splash pad at 41st remains closed. You can go for walks, runs, and bike rides, on trails and open park areas for exercise and personal well being, but you should maintain physical distance (i.e. be more than 6 feet away from persons who are not part of your household). Per City Ordinance, persons exercising in communal outdoor spaces, or persons walking or exercising with other persons from the same household in communal outdoor spaces are not required to wear Face Coverings, as long as Physical Distancing is maintained. Persons congregating in communal outdoor spaces with other persons not in their same household are required to wear Face Coverings when Physical Distancing is not maintained. As always, the health and safety of our staff and residents is our top priority, and we will continue to provide updates and information on our website. (Updated 7/16/20)
