PARKS URGE PUBLIC’S COOPERATION TO REMAIN OPEN DURING COVID-19

Parks across the state of Ohio are requesting the public’s assistance in keeping parks operating safely during a visitor surge due to the COVID-19 public health emergency.  As an essential service under Ohio’s stay-at-home order, parks are playing a vital role in supporting the community’s mental and physical health.

For a safe visit, park visitors are urged to:

Think First: Stay home if you are sick or exhibiting symptoms.

Wash Hands: Wash your hands before coming to the park, carry hand sanitizer, and avoid touching picnic tables, railings, benches, and pets.

Keep Your Distance: Maintain 6 feet between yourself and others and give warming before passing on the trail.

Come Prepared: Bring your own drinking water, carry out your trash, and be prepared for restroom closures.

Respect Closures: Playgrounds, exercise stations, shelters, and other amenities are closed for public safety.  Also, please bypass busy areas for quieter ones.

Stay Positive and Flexible: The situation is dynamic.  Please be patient and flexible as certain closures may be required for your health and safety.
