New Procedures Implemented at City of Madison Parks
Madison, IN—Effective immediately and continuing until the City of Madison is released from Governor Holcomb’s Public Health Emergency, new procedures have been implemented at all city parks and the city campgrounds.
City basketball courts will remain open, but individuals must adhere to the following rules.
- No pick-up games.
- No more than two people on the court at a time.
- Social distancing of six feet apart must always be observed.
- No crowding around or near the courts.
City shelter houses will remain open, but individuals must adhere to the following rules.
- No more than ten people in the shelter house at a time.
- Social distancing must be observed; individuals must remain six feet apart.
- No crowding around or near the shelter house.
The city campground will remain closed through April. The city will reevaluate this decision as needed.
As a reminder, all playgrounds are closed as they pose a high risk of spreading the virus.
“Governor Holcomb’s stay-at-home order allows for cities to keep their parks open, providing the community with recreational opportunities and the option to enjoy the spring weather outdoors; however, social distancing guidelines must be followed. Violations of the procedures implemented will result in the closure of all parks and the golf course,” said Mayor Bob Courtney.
