Park visitors should be aware that benches are not sanitized or cleaned, and they are therefore urged to avoid using them.

The following recreation and park spaces are closed until further notice:

All city and school playgrounds (physical structures)

Squamanagonic Disc Golf Course

Hanson Pines basketball courts
