Message from Town Supervisor Bill Smith - Monday, 3/23/20
THORNELL FARM PARK CLOSED, ALL TOWN PARK FIELDS & COURTS CLOSED
Trails remain accessible
Here’s what "social distancing" means: it means staying at least 6 feet away from anybody else.
It doesn’t mean “unless you’re playing soccer.” It doesn’t mean there are exempt areas where this standard doesn’t apply. Like parks, for example.
Therefore, here’s what groups of people playing soccer all weekend long in Thornell Farm Park means: Thornell Farm Park is now closed, effective immediately.
The Governor’s recent Executive Order states as follows: “All non-solitary outside activity, like outdoor basketball games and other team sports, is banned.”
Trails through Thornell Farm Park remain accessible.
If prohibited activity transfers to the other Town Parks, they will be closed as well.
