Nellie Gail Ranch Playgrounds Open Again!!

The state has reversed its playground restriction and is currently allowing them to remain open to “facilitate physically distanced personal health and wellness through outdoor exercise”. Please use your best judgment while enjoying playgrounds to keep children of different families reasonably separate, and please take extra precautions to clean hands before and after use. Also, please do not bring children who are sick or symptomatic of any illness to the playgrounds.

With this postings disclaimers, advisories, and warnings behind us now, please focus on enjoying quality time with your children outdoors and in our beautiful parks!
