Although the 150+ other playgrounds at smaller parks and neighborhood parks will not be barricaded, they are still declared closed and citizens are not permitted to use them 🚨Signage has been placed at the high use basketball courts indicting closed until further notice. 🚨Volleyball courts have had their nets removed. 🚨The gates of the dog parks and skate parks are locked with signage placed indicating closed until further notice. ⚠️ If shelters continue to be gathering spots for groups, we can and will close them (in other words, please don't make us!) If we all follow the guidelines and maintain social distance, we can slow the spread of this virus which is our top concern. ➡️ For more updates on recreation centers, child care, and other programs, please read the FAQ document on our website VBgov.com/parks
