[ARCHIVED] Important COVID 19 Update - April 1

The Governor’s most recent statewide Stay at Home Order (effective March 30, 2020) takes additional measures to enforce the importance of non-essential travel outside the home to reduce the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). 

In an effort to take necessary steps to protect our community, the following are closed or cancelled until further notice: all permitted use of athletic fields, picnic shelters and historic sites, park playgrounds and Pole Green Park skate park. Additionally, all department-sponsored programs and activities are cancelled through Sunday, May 17.

As announced on March 24, we have made the difficult decision to suspend spring program registrations and are postponing summer program and camp registration indefinitely. 

At this time, Hanover County parks remain open, including open spaces, trails and dog parks. Be advised that the amenities in these areas are not sanitized, so use with caution and follow the CDC health and safety guidelines. We reiterate the critical importance of social distancing and avoidance of gatherings and group activities.

We understand the importance of the park system to our residents and will re-evaluate the need for closures and cancellations as this unprecedented situation evolves. Please stay up to date with COVID-19 facts through the CDC and Virginia Department of Health.
