I am confused about our parks. Is it that only parks facilities are closed or the parks them selves. Ie can I walk a trail around the pond at bond park or white oak trail and etc.
Parks are open normal hours. Park FACILITIES (ie The Boat House and Community centers) are closed. You can walk safely in the park, throw a frisbee, play on swings (bring wipes!), walk the greenways and try to get outside a little bit but not in groups, and stay 6 feet apart from people not in your immediate family group.
