With the nice weather we have been experiencing, it is important to remember the guidelines established from the CDC, Governor Reynolds and the IDPH on social distancing. Because of these guidelines, the playground equipment at the parks are CLOSED as we have no way of properly cleaning the equipment. This will include ALL playground equipment such as swings, merry-go-rounds, climbing walls etc. The parks themselves will remain open but we are relying on everyone to abide by the social distancing standards.
We are all in this together and we appreciate your cooperation!
