Metro Parks suspends programs and closes buildings, but trails open

Summit Metro Parks has suspended its in-person public programs through at least Dec. 31. It continues to offer free virtual and self-guided nature education and health-based programs. Public buildings and lodges remain closed, and special use permit approvals continue to be on hold.

The district closely monitors crowds at parks and trails, and it may implement rolling parking restrictions and amenity closures to promote safe distancing.

The district remains fully operational, with rangers and maintenance crews continuing to keep parks clean and safe, naturalists and biologists helping to deliver virtual programming, and the majority of administrative staff continuing to telework.
