Due to COVID-19 guidelines and recommendations, YOUTH FLAG FOOTBALL LEAGUE AND COLORAMA BIKE RIDE will unfortunately be canceled. This is to ensure public safety and comply with guidelines and recommendations in keeping our community safe.

Due to COVID-19 guidelines and recommendations, Park Restrooms and Playgrounds will remain closed for the time being. Lincoln County Health Department recommended we keep closed and we will do so for community health and safety. Playgrounds are posted with signs saying "Closed, use at your own risk"

 We will continue to monitor the ongoing situation and adjust as we go - and keep you informed. . . *We encourage everyone to get out and stay active in our parks, but please do so safely and follow guidelines

***We are all in this together and we appreciate everyone's cooperation during this time. If we can all remain disciplined we can get back to "normal" hopefully soon. . . Any Park & Rec related questions should be funneled to our phone number 536-7313.
