The City of Kerrville Parks and Recreation Department is encouraging citizens to enjoy the outdoors, be active, and play safely in the parks system. Additionally, the city parks and trails will be open for the Easter weekend (April 2-4).
The City of Kerrville encourages all park goers to follow the CDC’s guidance on personal hygiene prior to heading to parks and trails, including:
Wash hands and carry sanitizer; do not use facilities if you have any symptoms relayed to COVID-19;
Cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing;
Observe at all times the CDC’s minimum recommended social distancing of six feet from other people;
Refrain from using parks or trails if you are exhibiting symptoms of illness;
Warn other trail users of your presence and as you pass to allow proper distance;
Step off trails to allow others to pass, keeping minimum recommended distances at all times.
Kerrville Director of Parks and Recreation Ashlea Boyle said, “For some added fun this spring, we have placed large Easter eggs at the Kerrville River Trail trailheads. Hunt down the eggs and complete the corresponding worksheet that can be found on the city’s website.”
Submit your egg photos to Parks and Recreation by commenting on the corresponding Facebook post or email to email@example.com by April 5 to be eligible to be featured in future department publications, and also a chance to win a prize. The winner will be announced via social media on April 9.
