City of Dallas to close parks for Easter weekend

All Dallas parks will close for Easter weekend beginning Friday, April 10, at 9 p.m. and will reopen on Monday, April 13, at 7 a.m. to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

“Easter weekend tends to be one of the busiest days of the year in the park system, but the department is urging the community to stay home instead,” said Dallas Park and Recreation Director John Jenkins. “While we miss our parks being full of families playing together, we hope they will enjoy their egg hunts and Easter brunches from the safety of their own homes.”

The safety of residents and first responders remain a top priority for the City of Dallas. Park rangers, Park staff, Dallas police, City marshals, parking enforcement, and Code Compliance will monitor the City’s 397 parks during the weekend. Digital messaging boards will alert people about park closures.

Trails will remain open, but users must abide by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) physical and social distancing guidelines.
