Parks Use Update
Goodlettsville, TN – As park use continues to increase, the Director of Parks and Recreation, Sarah Jennings, has cautiously updated the park rules to include the restriction of group gathering within the park. As of today, March 30, 2020, groups larger than five people are not permitted inside any City park. Any group not abiding by this rule will be asked to leave the property and is subject to citation under Municipal Code 2-104 and 2-105.
In repose to the increased use of the parks, additional sections of the park are now closed to help slow the spread of COVID-19. The following areas within all City parks are closed:
- Basketball Courts
- Water Fountains
- Volleyball Courts
- Picnic Shelters
“While it is not our intent to restrict access to outdoor activity, which we consider essential to everyday life, we have had a large number of patrons gathering in groups within our parks without consideration for others. Please limit the use of park facilities and stay at home if at all possible. When using park amenities, please follow the guidelines as laid out by public health officials. By doing your part, we can all help flatten the curve.” – Sarah Jennings
