  • Facemasks required at all times, unless under age 2 or doing vigorous exercise like running.
  • Social distancing required at all times, except for household groups visiting the park together.
  • Parks are open for passive and leisure use only: walking, jogging, cycling, roller skating, singles tennis, and solo racquetball.
  • Organized sports, pickup games, and training sessions are strictly prohibited.
