Mesquite, TX – March 26, 2020 – The City of Mesquite is closing parking lots at City parks to help promote social distancing.
The spring weather has been too beautiful to waste, and City parks will remain open to pedestrian access so residents can enjoy the open space areas and walking trails. However, to discourage gatherings in parking lots, at shelters or on playgrounds, vehicle access into our parks has been discontinued.
Outdoor exercise is encouraged while practicing social distancing requirements set by Dallas and Kaufman Counties, which asks people to keep six feet of distance between them while walking, biking, hiking or running.
The city thanks the community for their support during this time as everyone practices social distancing to help flatten the curve. The public can visit www.cityofmesquite.com/Coronavirus to get more details on local updates.
