Did you know that the current Shelter in Place order allows for individuals to "engage in outdoor activity, provided the individuals comply with the Social Distancing Requirements...such as, by way of example and without limitation, walking, hiking and running." Here’s a few ideas (don’t forget your Social Distancing in Public Parks and Trails rules!).
- Visit a local park - Our parks are free and still open to the public. *Playgrounds are CLOSED. Don’t forget to tag us on social media. Visit our page on Social Distancing in Public Parks and Trails
- Go on a short drive away and enjoy the mountain scenery.
- Walk/run around your neighborhood and say hi (from a distance) to all of your neighbors who are getting outside too.
- Go for a bike ride on the Mapleton Lateral Canal.
- Plant a garden or start off small with something as simple as strawberries in a container.
