COVID-19 Park Updates


Broward County Parks have been taking precautions to protect the health of our employees, guests, and the community from exposure to COVID-19 by cautiously reopening some regional parks, natural areas, nature center grounds, and select neighborhood parks for passive use and limited recreational opportunities. Facilities will partially reopen per Emergency Order 20-10, which includes enforceable implementation of limiting occupancy. For other resources from Broward County on COVID-19, please visit this Web page. FIREWORKS VIEWING IS NOT ALLOWED IN ANY OF OUR PARKS THE WEEKEND OF JULY 4, 2020. Beaches will also be closed this weekend as will Hollywood North Beach, Green, Hawksbill, Kemp's Ridley, Leatherback, and Loggerhead parks.

Visitors and staff need to follow CDC guidelines:

  • If you are sick, stay home, and follow the advice of your health care provider. 
  • Bring a facial covering and wear it when you are within six feet of another person.
  • Observe social distancing by staying at least six feet from other people.
  • Wash your hands regularly with soap and water, and use hand sanitizers when you can't wash.
  • Cough and sneeze into your elbow, not your hands, or into a tissue that should be immediately discarded. 
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Avoid touching public surfaces such as hand railings, elevators, and credit card machines. If you can't avoid touching surfaces, use a tissue, paper towel, or gloves.
  • Social gatherings of groups of 10 and fewer will be permitted if practicing physical distancing guidelines.
