Memorial Day Weekend

Here is what is open, where you can play, and how you can continue to stay safe over the Memorial Day weekend.

This holiday weekend will look different for everyone. Patio nights with family and friends and bbq gatherings are not gone; it will simply look different. A slightly modified Memorial Weekend.

Before the weekend begins, here are a few tips to know:

Safer-at-home expires May 26, the Governor and health officials are scheduled to release new guidelines this weekend or early next week. Until then, below is a reminder of what is open and how we can safely enjoy the outdoors with limited groups while practicing physical distancing:

Elk Ridge Park

Local hiking trails, bike paths, trailheads

● Exercising outdoors

● Tennis courts

● Golf courses

● Colorado state parks

Camping at State Parks

Colorado Parks and Wildlife

● Gathering with family members of 10 or less who have not been exposed to COVID

● Restaurant delivery and curbside pickup

Adjusting to the new normal has been difficult for all of us. This is the season we look forward to bringing our residents together. It was a tough decision to postpone our summer events; however, we are brainstorming event ideas that will bring the community together while following health guidelines. We hope to have an update in June. Until then, before the weekend begins, here is a list of public areas temporarily closed:

● Pools

● Playgrounds

● Public bathrooms

● Adult Fitness Court

● Pavilions and picnic tables

● Splash pads

Whether you decide to enjoy the trails, open space, or cold drinks and beautiful weather, have a wonderful weekend, stay safe, be happy, and eat take-out.
