TULSA COUNTY, Okla. — As an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19, Tulsa County Parks announced Thursday it will be closing all playgrounds and outdoor exercise equipment effective Friday, March 27.

However, parks and trails will remain open.

Officials say signs and barriers will be placed around structures at Haikey Creek Park, LaFortune Park, Chandler Park, O’Brien Park, Triangle Park, and Mack Taylor Park.

“We encourage the public to go outside and enjoy our trails and green spaces,” Tulsa County Parks Director Vince Trinidad said. “Please follow the CDC guidelines of social distancing and avoiding gatherings of 10 or more. We are working daily so that our Parks system will provide a benefit, as we all do our part to stay healthy.”

Officials say all Tulsa County Departments are following guidelines by the Tulsa Health Department and Centers for Disease Control.
