In the coming weeks, water systems expected to become available include the following park locations: Lewis Park; Lower Onondaga (self-activated); Schiller Park Mushroom; Skiddy Park; Washington Square Park; and Wilson Park.
Signage reiterating healthy practices in accordance with reopening guidelines will be displayed. Masks (except when near water outlets), social distances of 6 ft. apart, avoidance of large gatherings, and transmission prevention precautions are required for use of any city park recreational features. City pools remain closed for the time-being due to the financial impact of COVID-19 on city government.
