The Town is taking all measures we can to educate and protect our community to minimize potential exposure and spread of COVID-19.  Some park amenities have restrictions and guidance posted  to follow State Guidance and 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.
