Playgrounds, restrooms & courts to close Monday

Sunday, March 22, 2020 - 12:21pm

The Town of Wake Forest continues taking precautions to promote social distancing and avoid gatherings of people in response to health experts’ recommendations to slow the spread of COVID-19. Beginning Monday, March 23, all Wake Forest Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources parks playgrounds, restrooms and athletics fields are closed until further notice. All PRCR-maintained picnic shelters, basketball, pickleball and tennis courts are also closed until further notice.

This is in addition to the closure of all facilities and the cancellation of all programs, special events, and facility rentals.

All Town parks and greenways remain open to the public. However, users are urged to remember the following:

  • Refrain from using parks or trails if they are exhibiting symptoms.

  • While on trails, warn other users of their presence as they pass, and step aside to let others pass.

  • Always observe CDC’s minimum recommended social distancing of 6 feet from other individuals. If this is not possible, find an alternate location or depart that space.

As this situation continues to evolve, expect further announcements about Town closures and service modifications.
