COVID-19: Social distancing and parks

Greater Minnesota Parks and Trails wants to remind you that your state, regional and local parks and trails are a great place to maintain social distancing while getting all of the benefits of being outdoors. Let nature help reduce your stress and anxiety and also provide physical activity to keep you active.

Please be mindful or others and the social distancing recommendations so the parks can continue to be open to the public as long as it is safe to do so.

Come prepared, although most parks and trails may be open, they may not have all of the typical amenities such as open public buildings, restrooms and water fountains.

Minnesota is known for its great outdoors, and there has never been a better time to get out and enjoy the more remote areas of our parks!
