Beginning on Wednesday, April 29, all City of Parkland parks except Barkland Dog Park and Liberty Park will re-open daily from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. with limited activity for passive use, which includes activities like walking, jogging, and biking.
Parkland Mayor Christine Hunschofsky said, “Opening our parks for passive activity gives our residents a safe opportunity to stay physically and mentally healthy by enjoying more of the beautiful outdoors while following safe social distancing practices.”
Playgrounds, picnic shelters, and athletic fields will remain closed, in addition to other amenities like water fountains, vending machines, and concession stands. All organized athletic leagues, games, practices, and tournaments will remain suspended.
