“This is extremely disappointing news to us, given the extensive COVID-19 protocols we’ve put into place,” said Bob Belote, Director of Parks. “But ultimately we’re only as safe as our patrons and the personal responsibility they exhibit. For everyone contemplating using our facilities, we implore you to do the right thing: if you’re symptomatic, please stay home and don’t put others at risk.”
