Will the county's tennis courts remain open with the new restrictions in place?
SPLASH PAD BROKEN AGAIN
Can someone address the issue at Hugh Macrae park at the splash pad. There are young children playing naked and women wearing thong swimsuits out there. This all happpened today. No child should be out there naked as we face issues of child molestation and human trafficking, but to allow them to play for along period of time without clothes in public is not acceptable.
Is Ogden Park open all the way through?
Any word on the assessment of park conditions?
