A NEW UPDATE FROM THE CRAWFORD PARK DISTRICT DIRECTOR
As we continue to navigate through these trying times, we must remain diligent in slowing the spread of corona virus. As of now (4/7/20), all CPD parks and preserves are open; however, the Lowe-Volk Nature Center will remain closed and all programming is cancelled until May 10. We will make a determination prior to May 10 about extending, or hopefully shortening, this date. We have also closed the Nature Playscape at Lowe-Volk Park. With the stay-at-home order: We see you hiking with your family through the trails; we see you meeting up and social distancing from your cars as you chat through windows; we see you casting lines in hopes of catching the “big one”…and we say “Thank You!” As you continue to utilize your parks, please adhere to the Governor’s social distancing and group gathering guidelines. Before you enjoy one of your great parks, plan ahead as there are no restrooms or drinking water available. We will continue to monitor the situation and make changes as needed. Park staff are still available via phone (419-683-9000) or email (email@example.com). Thank you and stay well.
A NOTE FROM THE CRAWFORD PARK DISTRICT DIRECTOR In light of recent events regarding COVID-19, the Crawford Park District will close the Lowe-Volk Nature Center until April 12. All programs and events are also cancelled until the same date. We will evaluate the situation at that time to determine if we will lengthen the closing and cancellations. All parks and trails will remain open sunrise to sunset.
During typical school closings, we see an increase of parents and grandparents bringing their children to the Lowe-Volk Nature Center. With schools being closed for at least three weeks, we anticipate a similar increase in attendance. However, based on current knowledge of the virus, the decisions at the state level, and for the benefit and health of our community, we need to do our part.
This decision was not easy. We pride ourselves in being a go-to for families to come and enjoy our facilities. While your Nature Center will remain closed, please take the opportunity to enjoy the wonderful trails of your park system. Staff will still be carrying out the day-to-day operations of the Park District. If you have questions, comments, or would like to report a possible trail issue, you can still call the Park District office at 419-683-9000. Thank you for your understanding.
