Parks and open space will remain open to the public for passive recreation, including roads, parking areas, trails, lakes and other open space areas. However, restrooms, comfort stations, playgrounds, dog parks, basketball and tennis courts, the flying field, and similar facilities are closed until further notice in order to protect public health and safety. We ask that the public practice social distancing and refrain from large groups while enjoying our parks and open spaces.

Many of our developed parks offer picnic facilities that may be reserved for picnics and special events. A reservation permit must be issued to reserve these areas for all organized group activities.

Picnics

If you are looking to book a picnic in one of our Parks, please allow a minimum of two to four weeks when scheduling use of facilities. It may be useful to review the Frequently Asked Questions for Picnics as well as the two worksheets below for more information about the picnic areas. All permits must be paid for and signed in person by the individual in charge of the picnic at the Parks Administration Office.
