Update (April 2, 2020): The City of St. Louis Park is not closing its parks, trails and open spaces and wants them to be used in a safe manner that allows people to enjoy the mental and physical health benefits these spaces provide. Signs have been posted in all city parks advising visitors how to safely use the parks during the coronavirus outbreak. It’s not practical to fence off these areas or otherwise disable equipment, nor does the city believe it will deter those who are determined to use these facilities despite #StayHomeMN guidelines.

City staff and police officers are regularly monitoring these areas, with a goal of providing education and seeking voluntary compliance from users who may not be observing recommended physical distancing and group gathering guidelines. This approach is in line with recommendations of the Minnesota Department of Public Safety to local law enforcement regarding the #StayHomeMN order. 

Follow these guidelines when using the parks and trails to minimize risk to yourself and others.

  • Don’t use parks and trails if you are sick or exhibiting symptoms.
  • Maintain 6 feet of distance from other individuals at all times.
  • Prepare for limited availability of restrooms and water fountains.
  • Playground structures are closed.
  • Wash your hands before and after visiting the park.
  • If you observe large groups gathering in these areas without physical distancing, call the police department’s non-emergency line at 952.924.2618 – DO NOT call 911.
