Sylacauga Parks and Rec. opens some outdoor spaces

SHARE NOW

SYLACAUGA, Ala. – The Sylacauga City Council asked Sylacauga Parks and Recreation executive director Jim Armstrong to use his discretion as it pertains to opening some outdoor spaces.

Under Gov. Ivey’s Safer at Home order, many municipalities have opened spaces such as walking trails, tennis courts and green spaces where it is possible to maintain social distancing. As of this morning, Sylacauga has done the same, including Sylaward Trail and Lake Howard.

Under the current orders, people are still required to maintain social distancing, and Parks and Rec. reserves the right to close the parks if the state’s mandates are not followed. Signs will be posted with the warning.

“We don’t want to do that because people need to be outside,” Armstrong explained.

Pavilions and playgrounds will still be closed until at least May 15 depending on Ivey’s orders according to Armstrong.
