Hamilton County Parks Suspends Remainder of its Major Events Through 2020
Hamilton County Parks and Recreation announced the cancellation of its major community events for the balance of the 2020 season due to the lingering threat posed by the COVID-19 virus. “Park board members made the difficult decision to unanimously suspend all large park events out of a genuine concern for the health and safety of guests, volunteers, sponsors, park staff and the community,” stated Chris Stice, Director of Hamilton County Parks and Recreation. Stice added “Such popular park events as the Concerts in the Centerpiece at Coxhall Gardens, the Potter’s Bridge Fall Festival and the Little Haunt on the Prairie at Ghoul Creek Park, will unfortunately not be held this year, but dedicated park staff continue to prepare for the events’ welcome return in 2021.”
Smaller scale, nature education programming continues to be offered by the park department with required reservations, at limited capacity and necessary precautions in place. For details regarding park programs, please visit the department’s facebook page, its website at MyHamiltonCountyParks.com or call 317-770-4400.
Stice closed by saying “during these ever-changing times and regardless of the uncertainties that lie ahead in 2020, Hamilton County Parks will continue to creatively serve our community’s needs through the implementation of smaller, onsite educational programs, as well as innovative online and virtual activities.”
