City of Lakewood Parks Procedures During Coronavirus Pandemic

April 02, 2020

The City of Lakewood continues to keep public parks open to the community during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“During this difficult time, outdoor areas and parks are an important resource for the community and an outlet for families. However, in order for our parks to remain open, park goers must follow the Governor’s Order on social distancing. The last thing we would want is to close the parks but if these guidelines are not followed we will have to make the difficult decision to have them closed.” Mayor George said.

Following COVID-19 precautions while enjoying the City’s public parks is critical to public health and “flattening the curve”. The City requires the following guidelines while visiting parks:

  • Practice Social Distancing–Safely remain six feet away from others
  • Avoid Playgrounds–all playgrounds are closed per public health order from the Ohio Department of Health
  • Take turns using ramps and paths
  • Avoid crowded areas and contact sports
  • Avoid touching surfaces
  • Leave no trash behind to protect park workers
  • Stay home if you feel sick or have a temperature higher than 100.4 degrees

Upcoming programs and events continue to be canceled for the safety of everyone in our community. Please visit and follow us on Facebook and Twitter for further updates and alerts. Additionally, you can find more information at the following links:
