The City addresses the community’s social distancing concerns at our public green spaces by sending staff to sites. As of April 1, employees from Parks & Recreation and the Plano Public Library will take turns patrolling every major park in Plano.
These “friendly monitors” will remind park patrons about the City’s emergency declaration, which recommends social distancing. The monitors will wear City of Plano shirts and will have City identification badges. Their presence is a reminder to all park patrons to comply with the county and state’s current rules during the COVID-19 crisis.
It’s important our residents are able to safely use all of the City’s 85 parks and nature preserves. Getting outdoors is a respite in these trying times. With so many other cities closing their parks, Plano wants our visitors to enjoy themselves SAFELY.
Staff will also monitor the smaller neighborhood parks on a rotational basis. If residents don’t follow the guidelines, restrictive rules will be necessary – and no one wants that.
With patron cooperation and our Team Plano presence, social distancing guidelines are followed and it helps flatten the COVID-19 curve.
