Parks & Recreation Department

Currently our office is running on limited essential services until further notice.

  • Our parks are open to the public every day from 8 AM - Dusk.
  • CDC guidelines for social distancing need to be followed by our guests.
*Fox Park is temporarily closed.

On Tuesday May 26, Fox Park was closed to visitors due to several situations  involving misuse of the park including vandalism. The park remains closed for the time being as staff once again work to prepare the park for full operations.

We are reviewing the Governor's latest Executive Order and a potential change in operations to follow those updated guidelines, and guidelines established by the Barry Eaton Health Department.

We are hoping to have the park open soon, and appreciate your patience in the matter.


While we appreciate the ability to remain an essential health and wellness outlet for the community, we must also do our part in conjunction with the public to keep our parks open. The more misuse and overcrowding concerns are raised, the likelihood more amenities and park closures become a reality.

Thank you,
Parks Administration.
