Due to Governor Abbott's newest mandate, the Texarkana, Texas Parks and Recreation Department is enforcing a face mask policy during sporting events at all our local public parks.

😷

Spectators are required to wear masks upon entering the parks and may remove them once seated and appropriately distanced from other parties.

Players may remove their masks once in their designated areas such as fields and dugouts .

We also ask that everyone wear face coverings in areas where social distancing may be difficult, such as walkways, restrooms, and other situations where individuals cannot remain at least 6ft apart.

For more information, please call Sports Manager Ross Cowling at 903-824-6991

Thank you for cooperating with these guidelines at this time.

It was a good evening for a walk at Spring Lake Park, and for Scout & Kiska the best part was spying squirrels.
