IndyParks has reopened spray grounds and playgrounds to the public and reminds visitors that they must comply with the Marion County Health Department’s mandatory mask order that takes effect today. [PDF] The Public Health Order requires individuals to wear face coverings in indoor public spaces and in outdoor public spaces where social distancing is not possible. Day campers and pool visitors must follow the guidelines except while swimming, diving, or entering/using a water slide.

While visiting park facilities, greenspaces, and trails, all residents must maintain social distance and follow CDC recommended guidelines, including frequent handwashing and staying home if individuals feel sick. The mandate does not apply to children ages 2 and younger or to individuals who are engaged in a form of indoor/outdoor exercise that is incompatible with wearing a face covering. View the public order, guidelines, and exceptions at the City’s COVID info web page.
