The splash pads are open with no restrictions.

Walking and jogging in parks will continue to be allowed.

Outdoor activities on basketball, volleyball, and tennis courts will be open with some restrictions as well.

People are still encouraged to distance themselves by six-feet and to wear face coverings.
