You can go for walks, runs, and bike rides, on trails and open park areas, but should maintain physical distance (i.e. be more than 6 feet away from persons who are not part of your household) to avoid spread of the virus. Persons at high risk for contracting COVID-19 should consider taking advantage of online fitness classes. Under current City Order, all City, County and River Parks playgrounds are closed. Trails, Turkey Mountain, other open space, and  disc golf courses are open. 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 3/29/20)
