Hamilton County Parks Change Operations to Comply With Executive Orders


Governor Lee’s Executive Order 22 & 23 include the following…

ESSENTIAL ACTIVITY includes:

Engaging in outdoor activity, provided that persons follow the Health Guidelines to the greatest extent practicable, including, but not limited to, driving or riding in a vehicle, walking, hiking, running, biking, swimming, kayaking, canoeing, golf, tennis, or other sports or recreational activities that can be performed while maintaining the aforementioned precautions or utilizing public parks and outdoor recreation areas

ESSENTIAL SERVICES includes:

Any business related to Essential Activity, as defined in Executive Order No. 22, including any outdoor recreation area, park, site, or trail that provides opportunities for outdoor recreation while maintaining adherence to the Health Guidelines

I believe the public needs trails and open spaces to promote physical and mental well-being.

As long as park capacity and visitor behavior meets health guidelines we can continue to provide these spaces to the public.

In response to State and local Executive Orders, The Hamilton County Parks and Recreation Department is announcing the following changes, effective Saturday 4 April:

Tennessee Riverpark                    CLOSED

Enterprise South Nature Park      OPEN for passive day-use only, no restrooms

Chester Frost Park                        OPEN for passive day-use only, limited restrooms

 

When visiting your parks, please act responsibly with regard to social distancing and park capacity.

  • Refrain from using parks or trails if you are exhibiting symptoms
  • Follow CDC guidance on personal hygiene prior to and during use of parks or trails
  • Make other users aware of your presence and maintain proper distance at all times
  • If you are unable to maintain social distancing, find and alternate location or time to visit your park
