In light of the COVID-19 outbreak, school closures and limited services, Douglas County Parks Commissioners are temporally suspending its $4 per day usage fee for all Douglas County Parks, effective immediately.
The temporary suspension will remain in effect until April 28, and possibly longer if closures and current restrictions are extended. Additionally, our plan is to keep our parks and campgrounds open for public access at this time.
Safety and proper sanitation are of high importance to the Douglas County Parks Department, and park employees regularly clean and disinfect park facilities, according to a press release.
However, residents should take extra precautions when visiting parks or any public facilities, including frequent hand washing, hand sanitizing, wiping down commonly touched surfaces with disinfectant wipes, and other safety and health measures as necessary.
Visitors are strongly encouraged to bring their own disinfectant and hand-sanitizing supplies with them when visiting parks or any public facilities.
