City of Ann Arbor Update: Parks & Natural Area Restrictions Due to COVID-19

Ann Arbor Parks and Recreation is implementing restrictions in an effort to adhere to Governor Whitmer’s Executive Order in response to COVID-19, and to help keep our community safe. Effective Tuesday, March 24, usage of city parks and natural areas is limited to activities that do not involve direct contact with others, such as walking, hiking, running and cycling. Please make sure while engaged in any of these activities to remain at least six feet from others who do not live with you in your household. And if you are sick, please do not visit the parks until you are well.

Furthermore, public and private gatherings of any number of people occurring among persons not part of a single household are prohibited, and in an attempt to make every effort possible to stop the spread of COVID-19, the following park amenities are closed until April 13: playgrounds/play structures, game courts (basketball, tennis, pickleball), groomed and ungroomed athletic fields, golf courses, the skatepark, disc golf courses, dog parks, BMX course and pavilions/shelters.

Ann Arbor Parks and Recreation encourages you to remain active outdoors as you are able, but please do so safely. Thank you for your patience as we follow the guidelines set by the CDC and the State of Michigan to stop the spread of COVID-19.
