Parks, trails open for activities that practice social distancing
Time spent outdoors can offer a variety of mental and physical benefits. City of Plymouth parks, trails and open spaces remain open for activities that practice social distancing, including walking, jogging, bicycling and nature viewing.
For the health and safety of the community, residents are encouraged to use parks and trails responsibly, be courteous neighbors and follow the guidelines listed below:
- Practice social distancing. Park and trail users should maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from each other.
- Stay home if you are sick. Protect others in the community – this practice is essential, especially for those who are most vulnerable.
- Do not use playground structures, shared equipment or other physical amenities. The City of Plymouth strongly discourages the use of playground structures, shared equipment and other physical amenities – as these surfaces are not sanitized. This includes the use of picnic tables, picnic shelters, benches, shared sports balls/equipment and more.
- Avoid congregating/gathering in groups. City parks are not open for gatherings. Picnics, organized athletic games and pickup games are not permitted.
In addition, as a precaution aimed at slowing the spread of the coronavirus, City of Plymouth drinking fountains will remain shut off, and portable restrooms and park buildings will be unavailable.
Please practice responsible use of Plymouth’s parks, trails and open spaces. Step outside to enjoy a nature walk, breathe fresh air and soak up some sunshine alone or with family – and be courteous of others.
