The Cameron Parks remain open and the public is encouraged to use them with the following guidance.
As concerns about the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak continue to grip our nation, we want to assure you Cameron Parks Department is committed to providing safe and quality outdoor recreation opportunities. Our park professionals are working hard to maintain these spaces and keep them safe, accessible and benefiting our communities during these challenging times. Part of this includes the temporary closing of all restrooms and playground equipment at all parks and trails, effective immediately, until further notice. Additionally, we are not accepting any new park or shelter reservations during this time.
We understand the critical role outdoor recreation and open spaces play in mental health and wellness. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has flagged mental health as a top concern associated with the COVID-19 outbreak. We recognize that social distancing may take a toll on our mental health, especially during high-stress and anxiety-producing global public health emergencies. We also know that parks provide a connection to the outdoors and green space as well as opportunities for physical activity which studies demonstrate reduces stress and improves mental health.
We do want to assure you that your parks are open, and we want to help answer questions and concerns you may have about visiting your local parks, trails or open spaces at this time. We believe that many parks, trails and open spaces can continue to be used in a safe manner that allow people to enjoy the mental and physical health benefits these spaces provide. But let us all do our part to use our parks and outdoor green spaces in a way that respects each other and public health guidance.
Therefore, we encourage all users to use our parks but follow these recommendations:
