  • Waivers will need to be signed by patrons acknowledging we can not guarantee that you or your family will not become exposed to or infected by COVID-19 as a result of participation in an EPRD program, event, or activity. We will obviously be taking extra cleaning/disinfecting measures to minimize this risk as much as possible.

Thanks to all of you for wearing your face masks, maintaining 6-feet, and washing/disinfecting your hands.  These safety precautions are critical in helping us stay open for recreation!  We will get through this!
