The nicer the weather gets, the more the urge to get out and enjoy the bounty of our outdoor spaces becomes.

Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R) spaces – city parks, trails, golf courses and natural areas – remain open to the public as of this writing, with restrictions.

Closed areas within these resources include playgrounds, skateparks, sport fields, tennis courts, parking lots and some park roads.

Water fountains, decorative fountains and splash pads have been left in winter mode and turned off. There is limited access to public restrooms.

Healthy visitors to open areas are reminded that they must maintain at least six feet of social distancing from people that do not live in their home.

Visitors are encouraged to wear face coverings to limit the spread of COVID-19 from people who have the virus but are not (or not yet) showing symptoms.

Hand washing prior to and after visiting is also recommended.
