Greensboro puts limitations on parks to stop the spread of coronavirus

Most parks are still open but you'll need to go to the bathroom before you get there.

GREENSBORO, N.C. — Greensboro has been at a stay-at-home order for about a week now. Under that order, citizens are allowed to go to parks but Greensboro officials are worried that there are still ways to spread the disease outdoors. 

That's why they're making some changes to city parks. They're closing skate parks and basketball courts. 

They're also closing public restrooms at the following parks: 

  • Gateway Gardens 
  • Greensboro Arboretum 
  • Bicentennial Garden
  • Barber Park
  • County Park
  • Hester Park 
  • Keeley Park 
  • Market Street
  • Lake Daniel Park
  • Lake Brandt
  • Lake Higgins 
  • Lake Townsend. 

The city will also put up additional signage to let people know to practice social distancing.
