Get out and enjoy Fort Worth parks, but keep that six-foot distance

Posted March 25, 2020 | Last updated June 27, 2020

In this time of social distancing, there is still plenty of need for people to maintain their mental and physical health. Exercising outdoors – especially on beautiful spring days – helps our well-being and is critical in times like these.

Keep in mind; Fort Worth parks, trails and open spaces are still open and available to enjoy. However, residents are encouraged to comply with the recommended six-foot social distancing barrier at all times.

Some pointers to remember when you’re enjoying Fort Worth’s robust collection of parks and open spaces:

  • Warn others of your presence to ensure that six-foot barrier.
  • Prepare before heading outdoors to avoid water fountains and restrooms. Take along a full water bottle and some snacks, if you’d like.
  • Residents are strongly encouraged to avoid playgrounds in Fort Worth parks. With 205 playgrounds and more than 1,000 separate playground units in Fort Worth, the option of sanitizing after each visit is not sustainable.
  • Visit parks for brief periods of time, allowing others to use the space safely.
