Organized activities require a use permit from the MSRPD to ensure that current State and County guidelines are being followed. Any organized events without a valid use permit will be asked to disperse.

Help keep the parks open by following these guidelines, we will get through this together!  

At this time all MSRPD programs have been canceled and facilities have been closed to the public until further notice. While open spaces and trails remain open, all playgrounds are closed. 

We ask that park users follow these social distancing guidelines:

-Wear a mask in public spaces when unable to maintain 6ft distance from others as required by state and county public health. 

-Refrain from using parks or trails if you are exhibiting symptoms.
-Follow CDC’s guidance on personal hygiene prior to and during use of parks or trails, and make a conscious effort to avoid potentially contaminated surfaces.
-While on trails, warn other users of your presence and step aside to let them pass.
-Follow CDC guidance on the recommended size of social gatherings including outdoor picnicking, pick-up sports and other group hangouts, and maintain proper physical distance at all times.
-Observe CDC’s minimum recommended social distancing of 6 feet from other individuals. If this is not possible, find an alternate location or depart that space.
