Park Amenities


Governor Whitmer issued a new Executive Order yesterday that allows small gatherings of 10 people or less starting immediately, as long as participants practice social distancing. In response, the City of Portage has opened the following park amenities: 

  • Pickle Ball Courts 
  • Tennis Courts 
  • South Westnedge Dog Park (with a maximum of ten people) 
  • South Westnedge Skate Park (with a maximum of ten people) 

Park patrons are reminded that social distancing rules still apply. Please remain six feet from other park patrons, wash or sanitize your hands frequently and wear a face covering. “While Governor Whitmer has eased certain restrictions, we must be vigilant by continuing to protect each other from COVID-19,” said City Manager, Joe LaMargo. Park amenities that will remain closed for the time being include: 

  • Basketball Courts 
  • Playground Equipment 
  • Pavilions / Picnic Tables 
  • Inline Hockey Rinks 
  • Restrooms 

At this time, Ramona Park Beach is expected to open on Friday, May 29. The Portage Farmers Market is scheduled to open for the season on June 7. Adult softball leagues and pickleball leagues are scheduled to begin the week of June 1. All of these dates are subject to change based on the status of the Governor’s Stay Home, Stay Safe Executive Order.
