Feel Great, Recreate!

Here are some ideas to keep active, get outside and remain socially distant. Being outside, even for just 20 minutes, will reduce stress and improve your mental health. Please help keep our parks clean and leave the areas you visit better than you find them. “Leave no trace and carry out what you carry in”

While we encourage you to bring your family pets with you to our parks (where allowed), please keep in mind that they must remain under your control while doing so, whether on a leash or verbal command, it is important for the safety of other patrons and your pet!
