TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Governor Ron DeSantis' Phase Two of Florida's plan to reopen allows bars to reopen and restaurants to increase capacity, but many are asking when another public activity will restart.
In Leon County, the gates at dog parks will unlock Friday!
Consistent with the State of Florida and guidance from the Center for Disease Control, Leon County closed all playgrounds, dog parks, and pavilions with more than one picnic table on Tuesday, March 24.
During Phase One of the state's plan to reopen, visitors will not have access to certain amenities, such as pavilions, picnic areas and campsites, due to sections of the park being closed or staff and visitor safety considerations.
Under this guidance, all County trails, greenways, passive parks, and boat landings remain open for small groups, fewer than 10, and all playgrounds, dog parks, and pavilions with more than one picnic table are closed.
Phase Two says all state parks should be opened for daytime use, excluding overnight accommodations, pavilions, interpretive programs, and any large group activities or events.
