Staying physically active is one of the best ways to keep your mind and body healthy. In many areas, people can visit parks, trails, and open spaces as a way to relieve stress, get some fresh air and vitamin D, stay active, and safely connect with others.

Protect Yourself and Others from COVID-19 by following the use guidelines below once we begin to open up public facilities:

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO:  While our facilities and areas can offer health benefits, it is important that you follow the steps below to protect yourself and others from COVID-19.

Do

  • Visit parks/ play spaces that are close to your home. Do not travel long distances to parks at this time.
  • Utilize our public sidewalk system as a great source for exercise and stress relief. Enjoy a safely distanced stroll around town.
  • Keep your hands clean by washing them with soap and water, especially after going to the restroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
  • Prepare before you visit. Check our website in advance at www.simpsonvilleparks.com to know which areas or services are open.
  • Protect yourself and others. Bring hand sanitizer with you. Please wear a face mask when possible. Gloves are recommended as well.
  • Stay at least 6 feet away from others (“social distancing”) and take other steps to prevent COVID-19. Play it safe. Keep space between yourself and others.
  • Dispose of trash in the appropriate refuse containers. Please do not leave masks, gloves or other protective gear lying on the ground.
  • Use restrooms respectfully. Soap and water are available in the restrooms.

Don’t

  • Visit parks if you are sick or were recently exposed to COVID-19.
  • Visit crowded parks. If crowded, please come back at another time. Do not visit our parks where you cannot stay at least 6 feet away from others at all times.
  • Don’t use playgrounds at this time. We will keep you informed when it becomes safer to do so. Playgrounds are often crowded and could easily exceed recommended guidance for gatherings. It can be challenging to keep surfaces clean and disinfected. Virus can spread when young children touch contaminated surfaces and then touch their hands to their eyes, nose, or mouth.
  • Don’t participate in organized activities or sports. All ball fields and basketball courts are closed at this time. We will keep you informed when it becomes safer to participate in organized sports activities.
  • Don’t congregate. All picnic tables, benches and bleachers are currently off-limits. We will keep you informed as it becomes safer to congregate together.
  • Don’t visit our parks if you are sick or were recently exposed to COVID-19. If you are sick with COVID-19, were recently exposed (within 14 days) to someone with COVID-19, or just don’t feel well, do not visit public areas including parks or recreational facilities.
  • Don’t drink from water fountains at this time.
