Having moved to the Green Phase of reopening, Verona Borough Council has been working to navigate what that means for our Community. One of the biggest challenges so far has been whether it’s safe to open the parks, playgrounds and restrooms at the parks. Verona Borough Council is taking COVID-19 seriously and is trying to find the best solution possible to both keep people safe and also provide access to our outdoor facilities. As of Friday June 12th the Parks, Playgrounds, and Restroom facilities will be open entirely for public use. Like before, they will be closed at dark and reopened in the morning, but the community will have full access to Cribb’s Field, Riverbank Park and Railroad Park. The restrooms at Cribb’s Field will be open and will be cleaned by the Department of Public Works every morning, Monday through Friday. We are asking all residents to please use appropriate precautions while using these facilities. Please follow CDC Guidelines regarding safe social distancing practices. Within the next few weeks we will be having new fall surfaces installed in the playgrounds. We will give notice when we have an accurate date of installation but playgrounds will be closed during that time. For now, please enjoy our beautiful parks and playgrounds, get some fresh air and stay healthy. Verona Borough
