Park open areas will remain open. It is the responsibility of those using the parks to follow the guidelines provided by Governor Evers and the CDC. The Town is doing its best to maintain the current level of service because outdoor spaces are critical to the mental and physical health of our community. Benches, tables, and other surfaces at the parks will not be wiped down and cleaned. As a result, those individuals visiting the parks need to take the necessary precautions and bring hand sanitizer, practice social distancing, and refrain from forming large groups for socialization or team sports. The Town does not have the resources to provide ongoing monitoring of the parks and play areas, and its anticipated that the general public will do its part to keep our parks available to everyone.
