What's Closed?

Basketball Court at Town Park remains CLOSED because it is not possible to ensure social distancing protocols are followed. We plan to open this amenity as soon as the social distancing standards allow. Unfortunately, the Basketball Court has also been a source of conflict for staff and law enforcement regarding players from outside the household using the court, which could put community wellness at risk. 

Fields are open for Town-approved programming that follows State and County Guidelines. Games, scrimmages and adult athletics are NOT currently approved.

The Town is taking all measures we can to educate and protect our community to minimize potential exposure and spread of COVID-19. We have locked/closed some park amenities to protect our community. We urge community members to practice safe physical distancing by staying at least 6 feet apart and to wash and sanitize hands often.

We appreciate your support & will reopen as soon as it is safe to do so.
