  • 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

All of these dates are subject to change based on the status of the Governor’s Stay Home, Stay Safe Executive Order.
