Important COVID 19 Update - May 15

Park Use Guidelines: Do you part to keep yourself and others safe when using the parks

In conjunction with the executive orders of the Governor implementing Phase I of the Forward Virginia plan, effective May 15, the park playgrounds and Pole Green skate park will be reopened.

Be advised that amenities throughout the parks are not sanitized, so use with caution and follow the CDC health and safety guidelines. We reiterate the critical importance of flowing physical distancing guidelines and avoidance of gatherings and group activities.

At this time, all permitted use of athletic fields, picnic shelters and historic sites remain cancelled and all department-sponsored programs and activities are cancelled. These cancellations include Taylor’s Pirate Fishing FUN and Taylor’s Neon Night Bike Ride, both scheduled in June. As the state continues to transition through reopening phases, the Department will make decisions regarding future programs, events, and the use of park athletic fields.

We understand the importance of the park system to our residents and will continue to 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.
